Description: 

In 2010, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the National Institutes of Health
(NIH), and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), collaborated to launch the Medical
Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI), a visionary project to support medical health training and research
development in sub-Saharan Africa. MEPI was funded by PEPFAR through the Office of the U.S. Global
AIDS Coordinator (OGAC) in the Department of State and by the NIH. It was administered by the NIH Fogarty
International Center and the HIV/AIDS Bureau of HRSA in the Department of Health and Human Services. The
core tenets underlying MEPI were outlined by the United States Global Health Initiative and included health
systems strengthening and country ownership. Awards worth $130 million for the five-year project were made
to thirteen medical schools in twelve sub-Saharan African countries and to a Coordinating Center (CC).
