LIDC and SOAS Radio train African researchers and policy-makers in risk communication

On 9-11 July 2015 a group of 20 senior researchers and government officials from Ministries of Health in Tanzania, Zambia, Uganda and Kenya gathered in Dar es Salaam for a 3-day series of workshops in risk communication.

The researchers represented the Southern African Centre for Infectious Disease Surveillance (SACIDS), a virtual consortium of human and animal health research institutions from across the continent, working in a ‘smart’ partnership with LIDC and its member colleges London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) and Royal Veterinary College (RVC).
