We aim to develop (through high quality training and mentorship) the younger generations of African scientists, healthcare workers, laboratory personnel, clinical trialists, ethicists, and social scientists to take leadership of public health research. This training will cover many areas of research, such as diagnostic techniques, emergency response, financial management, bioinformatics, ethics and quality management.
