Dr. Lynda Wilson also has partnered with the Sparkman Center for Global
            Health and other Zambian partners to receive funding
commitments from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
                office in Zambia and the Johnson & Johnson
 Foundation for SON faculty to help create what is the very first HIV nurse
  practitioner program in Zambia. Through this program, Zambian nurses
                                                                               HIV; nurse
      take training leading to a certification, enabling them to provide
   comprehensive care for patients with HIV, including the prescribing of
    antiretroviral drugs to combat HIV. Through a collaboration with the
Zambian Nursing Council, the Ministry of Health, CIDRZ, the University of
 Maryland School of Nursing, the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka,
  and many other Zambian partners, this new program was established in
  2009- 10. Thirty Zambian nurses, representing nine provinces, became
 that program’s first graduating class in June 2010. Another class of thirty
                   nurses began the program in July 2010.

           Project are working with the University of Zambia to improve access to health       digital library
           information resources for nursing students, faculty, and practitioners. Nurses
           in higher resource countries are fortunate to have access to many health
           training resources in libraries and over fast Internet connections. Many
           institutions in Zambia and other lower resource countries do not have this
           luxury. In response, we will provide Zambian institutions with webpages, PDF
           files, videos, e-books, curricula through an offline solution from the University
           of Iowa called the eGranary Digital Library to offer an alternative to access
           health information rather than Internet, which may be slow or expensive.
           These resources will also then be available to other settings via the eGranary
           Digital Library. The eGranary Project is supported by many global
           collaborators including the World Health Organization. The Alabama/Iowa
           project will be providing "eGranaries", a LAN/Intranet based off-line repository
           of digital information to nurse training institutions in Zambia. It will target
