Optimisation of the Medical Education Partnership Initiative to address African health-care challenges
The Lancet Global Health
The Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI) is an innovative and potentially transformative 5-year programme, established by the US Government in 2010, to increase the number of doctors to meet crucial human resource needs in sub-Saharan Africa.1 MEPI allows African institutions that are the direct grantees to define and direct programmes to address their own crucial gaps in medical education and workforce shortages in partnership with US academic partners.
