The Capacity Building in Malaria Course is aimed at strengthening competences of researchers, public health personnel and care givers to fight malaria in Africa.
The 6th session will take place from October 1 - November 2, in Ifakara, United Republic of Tanzania, at the Tanzanian Training Centre for International Health.
16 participants, mainly from East Africa, will be selected for the the Capacity Building in Malaria Course grants according to their profile, professional status, and letter of motivation and of recommendation.
The minimum requirement is a BSc or Master degree, several years of professionnal experience and basic computer skills (at least on word processing).
The tutorial lasts for 5 weeks, each one focusing on one or two topics with relevant local and international experts in the field.
The course will be held by experienced experts from Europe in collaboration with our partners in Ifakara. The course is taught in English.
Of course some typical Ifakara experiences will not be missing, be it a cruise on the Kilombero River in a dugout canoe or hiking to the spectacular waterfalls at the Udzungwa mountain national park.
All course, travel, accommodation and meal expenses will be paid by the organizers. Only health insurance is at the expense of the participant.
