Obama administration launches health partnership in developing countries

Through this exciting new partnership, the Peace Corps will supply medical and nursing professionals to help developing countries strengthen their public health systems, Peace Corps Director Aaron Williams said in a news release. By building on the Peace Corps model of grassroots assistance, as well as our existing infrastructure in developing countries, we will work with medical and nursing schools to build capacity, bring critical prevention and health care to remote communities and provide additional service opportunities for Americans.


The program is expected to start in the East African countries of Tanzania, Malawi and Uganda in July 2013.
