Objective: 

Tulane’s Payson Center is strengthening the capacity of the Makerere University School of Public Health (MUSPH) and the Muhimbili University College of Health Sciences (MUCHS) so they may provide effective public health leadership for Uganda and Tanzania and catalyze public health leadership training throughout the east African region. These efforts are accomplished by establishing long term partnerships between academic institutions in the United States and East Africa with a focus on curriculum revision; development of in-service, short-term training of public health practitioners; integration of appropriate information and instructional design technologies; and improving professional development activities for public health leaders.
