About Great Lakes University of Kisumu GLUK | see details below:
Origin and Evolution of the idea
The idea of establishing the Great Lakes University of Kisumu originated in the Tropical Institute of Community Health and Development (TICH) in Africa, which spearheaded the application for authority to operate as a university.

All About Great Lakes University of Kisumu GLUK

The establishment of TICH was inspired by a number of sources expressing the need for a formal course in Community Based Health Care leading to a recognized academic qualification. Such a course would be offered by an academic institution that could effectively weave together theoretical, evidence based and practical hands-on analytical skills training into development, conducted in learning sites located in the community, civil society, industry and public institutions.
It was thought that an Institute with the freedom to innovate but linked to an established University would be the best base for such a training program.
