On July 28, Chevron reported on its health care training initiative in Morocco:

As part of the Morocco Capacity Advancement Partnership (M-CAP)—a socioeconomic endeavor Chevron created in collaboration with the national oil company of Morocco—Chevron worked with Baylor College of Medicine International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) at Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) to launch a joint health care training initiative earlier this year. The initiative helps doctors and specialists in Morocco get vital training in their fields.

In March, more than 25 Moroccan doctors and specialists received a week of intensive training in blood diseases and cancer at the University Hospital Mohammed VI of Marrakech by hematology and oncology specialists.

The second training took place in Marrakech in June. Four pediatric physicians with Baylor College of Medicine and the global health coordinator from BIPAI oversaw the weeklong immersion program for 30 Moroccan specialist doctors focused on pediatric emergency medicine. The program consisted of tours, lectures and workshops in three different hospitals: University Hospital Mohamed VI, Hospital Ibn Tofail and Hospital Arrazi. [full story]
