The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is partnering with the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) to invest $130 million over five years to strengthen medical training in African countries, according to a statement from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Through the Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI), grants will train and retain up to 140,000 new health care workers and improve primary care services. The NIH and the HIV/AIDS Bureau of the Health Resources and Services Administration, which are both part of HHS, will administer MEPI.
