AFRICA BUILD Project begins

During the past two decades the European Commission and other European Agencies have supported several European health, academic, clinical, governmental and industrial initiatives. In the health sector in particular, this European support has helped to create sustainable centres with solid scientific, technology and public health benefits. In contrast there has been no significant transfer of expertise and technology to Africa. Health-related African centres find it difficult to compete with other centres from other countries for funding and support for their research and other activities.
