Kisumu and the broader Lake Victoria area were the epicenter for HIV and AIDS when it first emerged in the 1980s. Investments were made in medical research to respond to these and other health needs. Today, Kisumu is home to a joint campus of the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Founded as a collaborative venture in 1979, the partnership is the largest the CDC has abroad.
