Yale Partnerships for Global Health marks 10 years of supporting biomedical and public health researchers

A program initially launched to help curb “African Brain Drain” is now promoting biomedical research by scientists at universities throughout the Global South.

The Yale Partnerships for Global Health, now entering its 10th year, aims to reduce the burden of infectious diseases around the world by educating, training, and supporting the careers of biomedical and public health researchers.

The program was developed in 2006 by Dr. Elijah Paintsil, associate professor of pediatrics and pharmacology at Yale School of Medicine, and Dr. Michael Cappello, professor of pediatrics at Yale School of Medicine and co-Director of the Yale Africa Initiative.
