While Shawna doesn’t have lots of time to send emails we are thankful for this note on our long standing partnership and wanted to share it with you!
There are many objectives to this trip to Tanzania starting with renewal of partnerships and establishing next steps with some of our long term partners. Upon arrival in Dar es salaam, I met with PASADA which is an HIV/AIDS clinic. In future posts we will provide you with links to more information on PASADA (as it’s available).
The meeting with Simon Yohana (Executive Director), Dr Daniel Mazesa (Medical Director) and Leonard Mwakasege (Human Resources Manager) resulted in a renewal of our student summer program as well as an expansion for resident opportunities and the development of a certificate in HIV/AIDS. After 8 years of working with PASADA, Dalhousie’s partnership will expand to support their new priority areas in research as well as medical education. We will keep you posted on the growth of this partnership over the next few months.
If you are interested in getting involved in the work and partnership with PASADA, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
