Dr. Aklilu Azazh, Head of the Emergency Department at Black Lion Hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, visited Toronto and Ottawa from May 27 until June 5, 2014.

This IDRC-sponsored research trip allowed Dr. Aklilu to attend TAAAC-EM related research meetings and meet with important stakeholders for the project. He also attended the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians (CAEP) Conference in Ottawa, where 4 TAAAC-EM related posters were presented.
