Monday November 23rd marked the Halifax launch of the five-year Accessing Safe Deliveries in Tanzania (ASDIT) global health research project. Dalhousie University researchers will collaborate with partners from the Tanzanian Training Centre for International Health (TTCIH) and the Morogoro Regional Hospital in Tanzania to improve access to, and the performance of, emergency maternal care across the country.
The event was held in the newly renovated Tupper Commons. Speakers at the launch included Dean of the Dalhousie Faculty of Medicine Dr. David Anderson, Dr. John LeBlanc, who is leading the Dalhousie team and Zabron Abel of the TTCIH. You can read more about the ASDIT project, as well as Zabron’s time in Halifax, in our last blog post. For now, here are a few photographs from the research launch!
