Building Research Capacity
Over the past year we have been building research capacity through the VISION 2020 LINKS Programme.
With support of the ICEH through our Research Mentorship Programme we have been working with the College of Ophthalmology of Eastern, Central and Southern Africa (COECSA) to support researchers in order to solve some of the most pressing blindness issues in this region.
We are pleased to report that this project has had a very successful first year and we look forward to continuing to support our research mentees, Stephen Gichuhi from Nairobi, Simon Arunga from Mbarara and Godfrey Furahini, from Tanzania over the next year. More information on the project is available from the BCPB office – firstname.lastname@example.org
