What we do
- We are dedicated to the advancement of Pathology through educational exchanges in Kenya and in the East Africa Region.
- Collectively, we provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of advances in the understanding of pathological processes and for the presentation and critical evaluation of scientific, technological and methodological advances.
The Kenya Association of Pathologists, henceforth referred to as the Association, has no political objectives and is formed solely for the purpose of furthering the public interest by encouraging the study, advancing the science and improving the practice of Pathology in Kenya.
KACP is built of five sub-committes.
