International Partners

A unifying theme of the projects with our international partners is capacity building of healthcare providers. We believe that if underserved communities are to successfully cope with diseases, our efforts to empower caregivers must include traditionally marginalized groups in prevention and intervention activities. In developing countries, increasing the capacity of the healthcare workforce to meet the needs of their patients is an essential goal (WHO). We acknowledge that international capacity-building must focus on enhancing the knowledge, skills and practices of local caregivers within the resource constraints of their communities.
