Abstract

Abstract

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.
