USask announces health-focused project in Mozambique, establishes dental training hub

The University of Saskatchewan has announced two new health-focused initiatives. Thanks to a $20M investment from the Government of Canada, USask researchers will lead a development project that improves education, treatment, infrastructure, and services for the sexual and reproductive health and rights of girls and women in Mozambique. The project will focus on establishing “model communities of care” in six districts to serve as examples of quality reproductive care and education. USask also recently announced its plans to establish a premier dental training hub. The hub will host equipment for pre-clinic and clinic areas as well as augmented reality simulators to prepare students for a variety of dental procedures. Additionally, the clinic and pre-clinic spaces will undergo a $22M renovation to transform them into a patient-centred environment.
