TIBA-Sudan Advance malaria course November 2018
Tackling Infections to Benefit Africa (TIBA) is an Africa-led, wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary research programme that explores and draws lessons from the ways that different African health systems tackle infectious diseases. TIBA will help empower African scientists to effectively and sustainably tackle neglected tropical diseases (such as schistosomiasis, malaria, trypanosomiasis and lymphatic filariasis), and improve preparedness for epidemics (such as Ebola). Tiba means “to cure an infection” in Swahili.
