Webinar: Implementing Effective Capacity Building Partnerships in Global Health

Enabling high quality health professions education is key to ensuring high quality healthcare globally. Educational partnerships between high and low resource settings have been one way to try to advance this goal. The Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration (TAAAC), an educational partnership between the University of Toronto (UofT) and Addis Ababa University (AAU) is one such partnership. The TAAAC model was designed to help address an urgent need for increased university faculty to teach in the massive expansion of universities in Ethiopia.
