Abstract

The purpose of this research as a mid-term review to determine the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats for the Indigo programme from the perspectives of the partners, students, supervisors and the project management team. This article draws upon the research findings and suggests that the reflections and experiences of a broad range of stakeholders will not only facilitate direct programmatic learning, but also inform models of partnership in health research capacity building more generally.
