GIBACHT is a multilateral fellowship training programme in biosafety and biosecurity. GIBACHT is part of the German Biosecurity Programme and funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.
In order to strengthen national capacity in disaster management and preparednes, GIBACHT aims to provide knowledge and skills on intentional and unintentional infectious disease threats and their control.
During the one-year fellowship, participants gain theoretical knowledge through a blended learning approach, apply their new skills in simulation exercises, and develop their own teaching materials for implementation at their home institutions.
GIBACHT is a collaborative initiative coordinated by the Bernhard-Nocht-Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNITM).
