IUIS-FAIS-SANTHE-ISZ-Immuno-Zambia 2022

December 21, 2022Education Committee (EDU)

46 students from 15 African countries including 12 participants from Zambia and additional students from Mexico, Croatia and India, plus a faculty of 21 from various African countries and Canada, Germany, France, Mexico, and USA joined in Lusaka/Zambia for the one-week interactive course on the “big four” (HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, Covid-19) from 4 to 9 December.

In addition to talks, roundtable discussions, short presentations by participants and poster sessions, the participants worked in small groups in a grant-writing exercise under supervision of faculty mentors. On the last day, each group presented their grant proposal which was evaluated by faculty judges. A great exercise for upcoming real applications!

Overall, the first full in-person course after the pandemic was a great success, thanks to a dedicated faculty, highly motivated students, and excellent organization. Special thanks are due to Bon Holtak and the Immunopaedia team for all the administrative work (including preparation of the online pre-course) to make this course possible.
