Muhimbili University of Allied and Health Sciences

Dalhousie University has had a long standing relationship with Muhimbili University.  The partnership began with the Schools of Nursing and expanded into Medicine and Pharmacy over the last 7 years.  Dalhousie students have been engaged in global health programs with Muhimbili each summer.  This summer program has been an introduction to health systems in different countries as well as the impact of determinants of health on individuals and communities.  This experience has helped strengthen and build awareness of social justice within health and medicine.  Many of these students continue to advance their training and clinical skills with a stronger role in advocacy and social justice.
