London hosts an Historic African Gathering
16 October 2018
The PANDORA consortium (Pan-African Network For Rapid Research, Response, Relief and Preparedness for Infectious Disease Epidemics) aims to develop and strengthen effective outbreak response capacities across all geographical regions in sub-Saharan Africa, in partnership with national governments and other international stakeholders. PANDORA’s steering group includes UCL-TB’s Professor Sir Alimiddin Zumla (one of the project directors), Professor Ibrahim Abubakar, Professor Sarah Edwards and Professor Tim McHugh.
Those attending the PANDORA/CDC meeting were delighted to discover that there was a simultaneous meeting of African faith-based leaders and leaders of malaria control initiatives at the same venue. The PANDORA/Africa CDC group were invited to join the discussions and share experience.
