NUIG Saolta grant img

A Start-Up Grant has been awarded to the developing partnership between the NUI Galway College of Medicine, Nursing, and Health Sciences, and the Saolta University Healthcare Group, and their counterparts in Zambia’s Copperbelt province: Copperbelt University School of Medicine, Ndola Central Hospital, and the associated School of Nursing in Ndola. This partnership will focus on building capacity in healthcare, education, and research, and the Start-Up Grant will aid reciprocal exploratory visits from Zambia to Ireland, and vice versa, by key senior management and operations staff.
