“Thought without practice is empty; and action without thought is blind” Kwame Nkrumah
Our aim is to support the development
of robust ‘ready to go within 48-72 hours’ PANDORA-ID-NET trained outbreak
rapid response teams that can appraise, evaluate and conduct public health
research in each of the four African regions. These will be linked to other
regional and global networks on emerging infections and will, wherever possible
be multidisciplinary, including members from the clinical, veterinary,
environmental and operational sides of disease research.
