Building the capacity of health care workers in low - and lower-middle income countries (LMICs) to deliver quality clinical care and engage in relevant medical research has been a major priority for TREE, which views education as the best opportunity to improve care in LMICs in the long run. Over the years, it has received a number of grants to implement medical and research education programs including from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Fogarty International Center, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. TREE has a special expertise in developing e-learning courses for healthcare workers in LMICs having co-founded the University of Washington’s Global Health E-Learning Program (eDGH) and delivered HIV online courses in Kenya and across the world for over a decade.

Currently, TREE is engaged in building the research capacity of Aga Khan University in Nairobi, Kenya and offering opportunities for students from abroad to study medicine and acquire research skills in Kenya.
