  • enhance electronic connectivity and information technology at UEM and Maputo Central Hospital and train Mozambican professionals to sustain this infrastructure, by collaborating with colleagues from UEM School of Engineering and UCSD Biomedical Informatics
  • to partner with UEM Faculty of Medicine, the Mozambique Ministries of Health and Education, the Mozambique Medical Council and the two new medical schools to efficiently plan health care education to meet the country's longer-term needs

    In addition, a linked MEPI grant will focus on improving surgical care in rural areas of Mozambique and building surgical research capacity within UEM.
