The International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH), based in the University of Washington School of Public Health’s Department of Global Health, was recently awarded $20.1 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for the first of five years of funding.

“This is the third competitive renewal of this award since 2002,” said Ann Downer, executive director of I-TECH and principal investigator (PI) for the project. “It has now brought more than $600 million to UW and, through I-TECH, allowed UW to strengthen the health care delivery system for AIDS treatment in low-income countries around the world.” Downer is also a professor in the School’s Department of Global Health and adjunct professor in the Department of Health Services.
