On March 2, 2017, Prof. Agnes Binagwaho (Professor of the Practice of Global Health Delivery; Former Minister of Health of Rwanda; Senior Lecturer on Global Health and Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School) and Dr. Pierre Paul (Lecturer, Faculty of Global Health Delivery; Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Partners In Health) paid a courtesy call on Vice Chancellor Prof. Paul Zeleza and met with officials of the Division of Advancement and the School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences to explore areas of collaboration.
The areas under discussion include joint research, faculty exchange, joint grant applications, student supervision, student internships, and joint curriculum development among others.
The two faculty members were in Nairobi to attend a meeting of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria - a 21st century partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector and people affected by the diseases, designed to accelerate the end of AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as epidemics, by raising and investing nearly US$4 billion a year to support programs run by local experts in countries and communities most in need.
