The Toronto Addis Ababa Academic Collaboration (TAAAC) assists Ethiopians in identifying and implementing solutions to some of their nation’s most pressing challenges through training and education.
This partnership brings together faculty and learners at the University of Toronto (U of T) with colleagues at Addis Ababa University (AAU). Together, they support AAU in preparing the specialist professionals Ethiopia needs, while building upon U of T’s commitment to global citizenship and international engagement. By developing and strengthening AAU’s graduate medical and academic programs, we are building capacity in Ethiopia to train their own professionals. This will lead to a robust and accessible healthcare system, an improved economy, and pre-empt food insecurity and unemployment. Together, we are building a better future for Ethiopia.
