In 2009, the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health launched a global health partnership with Addis Ababa University’s Tikur Anbessa Specialized Hospital (AAU/TASH) and the U.S.-based diaspora organization People to People (P2P) to improve the organization of emergency medicine services and develop training opportunities for health care professionals at AAU/TASH. This work is made possible through the generous support of the American people with funding from the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention through a grant from the American International Health Alliance and their HIV Twinning Center.
