December 9, 2005
Dartmouth College will partner with the Muhimbili University College of Health in Tanzania on a clinic for HIV-infected children and a trial of a tuberculosis vaccine. The project will add courses to Dartmouth's curriculum, from global health to researching the feasibility of creating a pharmaceutical industry to serve Tanzania and East Africa. In addition to planning more student and faculty exchanges, Dartmouth is working with Muhimbili officials to find an instructor to teach students at the New Hampshire college Kiswhahili, the language widely spoken in East Africa.
