Sample ImageIn 1997, the Oaxaca Children's Hospital in Mexico and the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario in Canada initiated a twinning partnership at a time when the Oaxacan facility was just beginning to establish itself as a pediatric care center. Ten years of intense cooperation, based on a bilateral flow of clinical and administrative knowledge and incorporating human resources training and institutional capacity-building approaches, have followed.

This article will highlight the most important of these accomplishments.
