Project Description

Despite efforts to improve oral health, low- and middle-income countries such as Kenya often lack the resources necessary to build research and health system capacity. TABASAMU (smile in Swahili) will provide the basis for developing a training program with the ultimate goal of creating sustainable institutional capacity in research and training for oral health and HIV/AIDS.
