The MEPI network is comprised of thirteen African institutions in a dozen countries and their partners, forming a network including about 30 regional partners, country health and education ministries, and more than 20 U.S. collaborators. The network joins together the leaders in medical education, biomedical research, and clinical care throughout Africa, the United States and beyond, creating an enabling environment for innovation and the transformation of health care training and delivery across the continent. It is also envisioned that MEPI will build on strong links between MEPI institutions and their respective ministries of health and education. These linkages are essential to promote collaborative planning, the retention of graduates, and the sustainability of innovations in education and research.
A coordinating center serves as the coordinating arm of this initiative through linking the African sites and their U.S. partners, leveraging shared resources and providing technical expertise. The coordinating center has developed a web-based platform will allow partners to share data and outcomes, facilitate evaluation and provide a gateway to maximize the initiative’s global impact. The coordinating center will also support the formation of an African leadership network to guide and advocate for the initiative.
