Project Objectives

The main objective of the project is to build African capacities in the discipline of infectious diseases of humans and animals through adoption of one health principles in postgraduate training. This scheme is for candidates (85% of the training slots) from Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique and Ghana (Target Group 1- TG1) wishing to pursue postgraduate training in the form of either short-term placements (minimum of 6 months) or long-term/degree mobility for those wishing to follow whole programmes in project partner countries other than their own. The scheme also supports training (15% of the slots) for candidates from other countries (Target Group 2- TG2) and mobility of administrative and technical staff between partner institutions to undertake short term training, teaching, research, development of research projects and training materials/modules, administrative duties related to managing postgraduate students as well as other professional activities.

Mobility support during 2016/17 academic year

During this academic year, the project will support short-term placements (6-10 months only) of Master (MSc) and PhD students tenable at SUA, MUHAS, UG and UNZA as well as mobility of staff (1-2 months) to the same institutions.
