Two CAAST-Net Plus Partners Attend Africa Health 2015

Katharina Kuss of the Foundation for International Cooperation, Health and Social Policy in Spain, and Dr Najia Musolino of the Council on Health Research for Development (COHRED) attended last month’s Africa Health congress and exhibition in South Africa. Writing in a report published on Research Professional, Kuss and Musolino find that African health sector companies were “disappointingly absent” from the event. “This needs to change, and Africa-Europe research collaboration networks can help,” they argue.
