Technical AssistanceLSTM

EUA European Union funded 2.5 year project, TA-CSHS, started in November 2006 as part of the wider Health Sector Modernisation Programme (HSMP), with the goal of developing the CSHS into a centre of excellence through partnership with the members of a Consortium of two international institutions with a proven track record in training, research and technical assistance: the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and Mott MacDonald BMB. The consortium has a wide experience in international collaborative projects and hosting pre and postgraduate training programmes with students from all over the world.

The major objectives of the TA-CSHS project are:


  • To establish and develop the CSHS with three departments, ensuring its future sustainability as a corporate body
  • To define the needs of the trainers of the departments to run the training programmes and conduct internal or external training for Master Degrees and PhDs of the existing and future staff


  • To assist the CSHS in designing and delivering a range of training programmes


  • To promote high quality outcomes in the fields of health systems research within the CSHS relevant for stakeholders and communities


  • To promote high quality consultancies and perform consultancy projects starting with the MOH, but later for the overall health sector and neighbouring countries
