Manipal-McGill Program for Infectious Diseases
The Manipal-McGill Program for Infectious Diseases (MAP-ID) launched on August 13, 2016. Both McGill University and the Manipal Academy of Higher Education have strong reputations in infectious disease research especially in the areas of TB, HIV, and malaria. The goals of the program include fostering research collaborations between Manipal and McGill faculty; identifying promising infectious disease researchers and trainees at Manipal and supporting them to attend the McGill Summer Institute in Infectious Diseases and Global Health; identifying promising McGill trainees and faculty to be under the mentorship of Manipal faculty; and establishing conferences, short courses and workshops taught jointly by Manipal and McGill faculty.
Addis Ababa Partnership in Infectious Diseases
In 2009, a new partnership was forged between the Department of Medicine of AAU and members of the division of Infectious Diseases at McGill, to implement a post-graduate sub-specialty training program in Infectious Diseases (ID) for Ethiopian physicians. This program was initially supported through charitable and industry donations, until funding was obtained from the Research Institute McGill University Health Centre, to include a research component. This led to a decision to formalize the partnership under the auspices of McGill Global Health Programs, the JD Maclean Centre for Tropical Diseases and Addis Ababa University College of Health Sciences. The partnership has been named “Addis Ababa – McGill Partnership in Infectious Diseases”, or AMP-ID.
