AAU-McGill Partnership for Infectious Diseases
Infections continue to threaten the longevity and well-being of Ethiopians. The Addis Ababa University (AAU) and McGill Partnership for Infectious Diseases (AMP-ID) was formally launched in 2017 to foster and promote training and research in Infectious and Tropical Diseases. This partnership builds on the historical collaboration between AAU and McGill, which led to the creation of the Department of Medicine and the School of Public Health at AAU (in the 1980s) and on the joint Postgraduate Fellowship Training Program in Infectious Diseases launched in 2009.
Advance knowledge that will improve the quality of care of patients afflicted with infectious diseases, through interdisciplinary and international collaborations; promote translation of that knowledge into policy and practice.
