Medical and Veterinary Virus Research Symposium 2017: a showcase for Afrique One-ASPIRE research in rabies elimination through ‘One Health’

28 October 2017

The Medical and Veterinary Virus Research (MVVR) symposium is an initiative of KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme and KEMRI- CDC and the National Influenza Centre. The aim is to bring together those with interest in medical and veterinary viruses, whether basic scientists, epidemiologists, or public and animal health experts throughout the world in order to share their widely varied experiences. The 5th edition was held in Nairobi, Kenya, from the 7th to 8th December 2017. The theme was ‘One Health – Accelerating Virus Research in East Africa’.

Promoting One Health research across West and East Africa, it is appropriate that Afrique One-ASPIRE was invited to attend this edition of the MVVR. Kennedy Lushasi, a Tanzanian PhD fellow of Afrique One-ASPIRE, represented Afrique One-ASPIRE. His research study is entitled ‘One Health surveillance approaches to guide rabies elimination’. He presented a poster which emphasized the goals of his study, the methodology to use and the expected outcomes. To see the poster, click here ►
