Dirisana+ is an EU co-funded capacity building project in Higher Education aimed at improving health sciences education in southern Africa. The project falls under the national priority of “knowledge triangle, innovation” and reinforces links between education, research and business, as a means to further develop the higher education sector within our society.

The aim of our project is to provide a culturally-responsive quality health and science education founded on evidence-based research and directed at enabling students to address the needs of the individual, the family, the community, and the population, despite numerous resource constraints in Africa. This involves, but is not limited to, the training of our staff in health professions education through advanced degrees and online courses, use of advanced technologies both in and outside the classroom, re-evaluation of our curricula, and in assessing the knowledge, attitudes, perceptions and competencies of our students in an ever-changing academic and global environment.

A total of 1 000 000.00 was awarded to the Dirisana+ project through the Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE) Programme to co-fund activities between January 2021 - July 2024. CBHE projects promote transnational cooperation between higher education institutions.
