Research Links/Collaborations

MUHAS has always had links with various partners locally and internationally. The links involve international organizations in which collaborative research and consultancies are prominent. Other links include universities, with whom collaborations involve activities such as student and staff exchange, exchange of external examiners and joint (Sandwich) training programmes. As an indication of MUHAS’s increasing significance and standing in the international platform, the number of international links has been growing at a faster rate than the local ones.

On the other hands, in making sure the human resources for health challenge is tackled MUHAS collaborates with other friendly institutions/organizations from around the world for support to enable the University to train enough health care work force. In this photo the US Secretary of Health and Human Services Madam Kathleen Sebelius is receiving a MUHAS scarf as a present when she visited the University.

The University therefore strives to maintain and strengthen these links and makes concerted effort to promote international, regional and local links.
