Global Health and NTDs - an innovative educational approach to meet the endgame target in Madagascar

Education at all levels of health care is crucial for the proper management of complex diseases, such as the parasitic neglected tropical disease (NTD) schistosomiasis. Madagascar is one of the countries with the highest prevalence, yet gaps in both NTD and Global Health training have been identified.  EduMad will contribute to building NTD research and clinical capacities in Madagascar by training about 100 health professionals using an innovative educational approach.


Partner country Madagascar
Institutions University of Fianarantsoa
