Health-Professional Education Partnership Initiative (HEPI)

Status: No plans to recompete at this time

Program Overview

The Health Professional Education Partnership Initiative (HEPI) complements and enhances the training of a workforce to meet the biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs in low-resource, high HIV-burden countries in Africa, including Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The program leverages the achievements and lessons learned from the Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI), MEPI Junior Faculty Research Training and Nursing Education Partnership Initiative (NEPI), though prior participation in MEPI or NEPI is not required. Awards can further enhance educational programs, research programs, partnerships and networks formed by prior MEPI and NEPI support; or can expand to new health professional schools and departments.
