USAID commissioned a series of case studies to examine interventions and approaches to creating pathways out of poverty that either “pushed” the very poor towards productive engagement in markets and/or “pulled” the poor into markets. This case study, written by the Indiana Institute for Global Health Kenya, examines the Academic Model for Providing Access to Health Care (AMPATH) in Western Kenya which piloted a sequenced graduation approach to market integration.
