WP4: Capacity Building

TIBA’s Capacity Building (which forms part of Work Package 4 - http://tiba-partnership.org/tiba-fellows) will run throughout the programme's lifetime. This is developed through technology transfer, study visits and workshops, together with masters, doctoral and postdoctoral training. Individual projects will complement our Tool Kit projects. TIBA’s training and capacity building plans are aligned and integrated with ongoing initiatives by African partners such as the WHO-TDR and DELTAS Africa (Developing Excellence in Leadership Training and Science, funded by AESA and Wellcome to 2020) and hosted by 4 partners (Ghana, Kenya, South Africa, Zimbabwe). Capacity Building will include, but not limited to:

  • PhD training (In country & UKZN)
  • MSc and MPH training
  • Postdoctoral fellowships
  • In-country training
  • Technology transfer

TIBA will adhere to the 'Seven Principles for Strengthening Research Capacity in LMICs'
