New Funding Opportunity: NIH Partners with PEPFAR to Strengthen Medical Education in Africa

The NIH announced a new initiative to strengthen medical education in Sub-Saharan Africa, in collaboration with the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).  The program, called the Medical Education Partnership Initiative, is a joint effort of the Office of the U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator, the Health Resources and Services Administration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Defense and 19 components of NIH.
This program is in support of PEPFAR’s goal to increase the number of new health care workers by 140,000, and will also serve the related objectives of strengthening host-country medical education systems and enhancing clinical and research capacity in Africa.  The application deadline is May 12, 2010 and awards are expected to be issued by the end of September.  Complete news release:
