OUR COHORTS ARE CONNECTING AND
CULTIVATING EMERGING LEADERS

Program Overview

ICE-Africa is building collaborations and partnerships between Improvement Science industry leaders in the United States and likeminded practitioners in Africa.

ICE-Africa’s intensive six-month curriculum is building Improvement Science capacity through generating Clinical Improvement hubs to address current Clinical Outcome challenges in Africa. Candidates in each cohort are immersed in Improvement Science didactic and practicum training grounded on evidence-based methodologies. 

At ICE-Africa, we are cultivating Quality Improvement professionals who are committed to high quality patient care and are keen on bridging patient safety gaps in their areas of practice. 

Currently operating in Kenya – East Africa, the Kenya Quality Improvement (KQI) cohort is equipping clinical leaders from across the country with the knowledge, skills and abilities to become more effective, collaborative agents of change.
