Project Description

Historically, Colombia has been a focal point of tropical and infectious disease research. The post-conflict strategy of the government of Colombia has prioritized development and improvement of health in rural areas impacted by over 5 decades of conflict. Communities in these areas are among the most affected by leishmaniasis and other vector-borne and emerging infectious diseases and have chronically limited access to healthcare. This training program will prepare a cohort of new investigators in CIDEIM and other Colombian institutions and strengthen their research and training capacity to enable the implementation of the results of research on these diseases, into practice.
