 Capacity Building

Building local capacity for improved molecular diagnostic research and empowering local health care providers in diagnosis, prevention and control of tropical infections associated with a group of microorganisms called special pathogens because they are either neglected, misdiagnosed or undiagnosed [www.spparenet.us] is one way to reduce mortality rate and invariably impact on the economy. Therefore we have decided to train 500 health workers and researchers in special pathogen associated disease diagnosis, using molecular biology, Bioinformations, Microscopy, Quality assurance and overall disease diagnosis, management and care, over a period of 5years. We want to build capacity in the following areas

1. Molecular Biology (PCR)

2. Bio-informatics

3. Data management

4. Microscopic methods of disease diagnosis

5, Proteomics and Isothermal amplification

6. DNA Finger printing and MIRU-VNTR

7. Research proposal development

8. Multilocus Sequence typing

9. HIV/TB/Malaria workshop workshop MLST
