onals to improve health outcomes, according to Professor Kaaya, director for continuing education and professional development at MUHAS.

The collaboration's activities will be rigorously evaluated for relevance and effectiveness, added Macfarlane, director of program planning and development at UCSF Global Health Sciences. She said the partnership itself will be subject to ongoing critical analysis and review.

"UCSF Global Health Sciences and MUHAS are ideal partners for this proof-of-principle collaboration for two overarching reasons," said Haile Debas, MD, executive director of UCSF Global Health Sciences. "There is remarkable institutional symmetry in that both are public health sciences institutions that train physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dentists and allied health workers. In addition, the two universities have worked together for four years and have achieved a high level of professional trust and respect."

"Trained healthcare workers are essential to a strong and effective health system," said Kathy Cahill, senior program officer for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. "In addition to saving lives in Tanzania, the project could serve as an effective model for other countries."
