In response to the request by the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Health to build medical capacity and provide quality care, Addis Ababa University/TASH, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and People 2 People collaborated to design both Adult and Pediatric Emergency Medicine Partnerships. These relationships were established in order to strengthen emergency care infrastructure and human resource capacity at AAU/TASH in Ethiopia. Activities included in the partnership such as bidirectional exchanges of physicians and nurses as well as the development of emergency medicine fellowship training programs have contributed to increased knowledge and abilities among Ethiopian health professionals. Training local instructors to deliver high quality care and pass their skills onto others has been instrumental to the sustainability and success of these partnerships.
