[Leadership Session Presentation] Higher education in developing countries faces a particular challenge; half of the world's higher education students are found in developing countries, placing great strain on an already under funded system. Whilst the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD) health strategy urges countries to embark on massive capacity building, the truth is that the higher education sector in Africa does not have the resources to do so. The idea of multi-country partnerships has been proposed to address the sector's problem and at the same time, address the capacity building and leadership development needs for improved health care delivery. The Tau Lambda at-Large Chapter embarked on a project to develop African nurse leaders in higher education with the view to enhancing nursing scholarship for improved nursing and midwifery care in Africa. The CHENMA (Collaboration in Higher Education for Nursing and Midwifery in Africa) project portrays a unique, continent-wide leadership development model that seeks to build the capacity of nurses and midwives, to make a significant contribution to at least three of the Millennium Development Goals. The purpose of this presentation is to report on pertinent aspects of collaboration between university nursing schools on the African continent for the purpose of leadership development in nursing and midwifery education. The paper outlines the rationale and context of the Collaboration in Higher Education for Nursing and Midwifery in Africa (CHENMA) project. The discussion that follows focuses on the conditions in Africa that hamper the development of nursing and midwifery. It describes the efforts of the Tau Lambda at-Large Chapter to develop leadership in nursing and midwifery education, initially in East Africa and later in Francophone Africa through the CHENMA project. The paper articulates the values and underpinning principles, outcomes of and lessons learnt from the project.
