$8 million for uSask Mozambique health centre

April 20, 2009

Last Friday, the federal government announced an $8.2-million investment in the Massinga Centre for Continuing Education in Health, a collaboration between the University of Saskatchewan and the Mozambican Ministry of Health to teach vital skills to health-care workers in the nation's rural regions. The funds will assist a 5-year phase of the project aiming to triple the centre's training capacity. Since 2002, uSask has helped operate the centre to address the shortage of trained health-care professionals in Mozambique. In the last 9 years, over 60 uSask students have worked in the centre.
