The Arc of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Capacity Development: Insights from a Decade of Partnership for Medical Education in Zambia
Zambia and other sub‐Saharan nations suffer from a critical shortage of trained health‐care professionals to combat the human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome crisis. The University of Maryland and the Zambian Ministry of Health have partnered over the past decade to develop health‐care capacity among physicians, nurses, and community health workers. We describe novel interventions to train health‐care workers at all levels and argue that our collaboration represents a successful model for such partnerships between western medical institutions and African governmental health agencies.
