Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of an ambitious and exciting new project, STrengthening InterProfessional Education to Improve HIV Care Across Africa (STRIPE HIV), as well as a funding opportunity to support the engagement of MEPI and NEPI institutions in this project.

STRIPE HIV aims to strengthen interprofessional HIV training provided by MEPI and NEPI institutions and their partner facilities to ensure that the next generation of health care professionals is equipped to deliver the highest quality, collaborative, evidence-informed HIV care. Please review the attached flier for additional details about the project as well as instructions to apply for funding. Important dates and deadlines are also listed below.


We look forward to receiving your applications and building the network of partners that will ensure the success of STRIPE HIV.
