Zambia

In 2012, IGHID recruited a large research team who were working in Zambia. Their research and clinical activities were at that time based at the Centre for Infectious Disease Research in Zambia (CIDRZ), which they had built with their Zambian colleagues over a decade. More recently, at the request of Zambian academic authorities, the UNC team has turned its attention to a closer partnership the University of Zambia (UNZA) School of Medicine and its affiliated University Teaching Hospital (UTH). Toward this end a new partnership has been developed for direct UNC-UNZA engagement.
