This commentary addresses the statement that “ the authors believe that the HRH [Human Resources for Health] Program can serve as a model for other initiatives that seek to address the shortage of qualified health professionals in low-income countries and strengthen the long-term capacity of local academic institutions. ” I adopt the position of the devil’ s advocate and ask whether a country, with a profile comparable to Rwanda’ s, should adopt this twinning model. I suggest that the alignment with population and other capacity development needs should be the main criteria of decision.
