The ‘Peter Manschot’ fund was named after the first Dutch trainer of the FM-training in Eldoret. Peter Manschot died a few months after teaching the first group of FPs in Moi-University. His wife Leny Manschot is treasurer of the fund. In 2011 we also lost Dr. Arnout Chavannes, former teacher in Eldoret & member of the PM-fund. He contributed enormously to the training.

The PM-fund accepts gifts and assigned money donated to promote Family Medicine training programs in low resource countries. The  focus is on capacity building i.e. supporting students, help with staff/ faculty for the training, help with organising training courses and stimulating research. The training requires a continuous input of money for the students to live, for the trainers to be paid and for materials, transport and overhead/ ICT. Since Kenya is not a preferred donor country and is not receiving money anymore from the Dutch Government it is difficult to assure a healthy funding of the training. The success of the training depends on gifts and the voluntary input of many people, who go out to teach and coach only on travel and living expenses.

Since 2005 > 30  Family Practitioners (FPs) graduated and the FM-training has started in 5 universities in Kenya. All these FPs work in rural district & sub-district hospitals or health centres;  none of them has left the country. Many FPs from Moi University now work as faculty in the staff of other FM-training deps. The FPs started their own college and association and are in close contact using Whatsapp.
CME and research have taken off and FPs are in high demand for senior positions in the counties.

The PM-fund also contributed to  the FM-training in Ruanda (undergraduate program) and in Uganda (training of HoD, Makarere FM-training program) and Indonesia (Train the Trainers)
We collaborate also with FM-training deps. in SA and Malawi.
