Strengthening the Next Generation of Medical Leaders
Real and lasting improvements to health outcomes in Africa can only be achieved with Africans leading the way. The development of strong, national health systems, led—at all levels—by African healthcare providers, managers, researchers, and academics, is vital to winning the fight against infectious disease. Investing in the targeted development of the continent’s most promising leaders and enhancing its most accomplished academic medical centers are the cornerstones of Accordia’s mission.
Accordia’s programs and the centers of excellence Accordia has established and continues to support are designed to nurture the next generation of leaders to address existing and future health challenges in their own communities. Through strengthened medical education, comprehensive training programs, and ample opportunities for promising young leaders to conduct cutting-edge clinical care and research, Accordia enables African healthcare practitioners and researchers to excel.
As a result of Accordia’s programs, healthcare practitioners, researchers and managers emerge with the competence required to address the complexities and challenges associated with infectious diseases, and lead their colleagues in revolutionizing health care in resource-limited settings.
