University Partners

IHI has established partnerships with Sokoine University of AgricultureUniversity of Dodoma and the Hubert Kairuki Memorial University. In March 2011 IHI signed a new agreement with the recently-established Nelson Mandela African Institute of Science and Technology (NMAIST-Arusha).

Through these partnerships, senior IHI scientists will assist with the design, development and delivery of specialist short courses and modules taught at the universities. In addition, IHI will offer opportunity for teaching staff at the universities to spend time on research. 

This mutually beneficial arrangement is expected to ensure that IHI expertise is put to use in teaching, while also enabling academic staff to pursue their research interests.


In June 2011, there are 20 PhD holders and 25 others are enrolled in overseas PhD programmes. On average, IHI produces eight (8) PhD level professionals annually in the efforts to reduce the acute shortage of human resource for health in Tanzania. 

Other cadres include 24 MSc students using IHI as their training platform and several others who are undertaking undergraduate courses.
