POPart factsheet

The factsheet is conveying results from the study Demographic characteristics of sources of HIV-1 transmission in Zambia in the era of test and treat, that showed that men between the ages of 25 and 40 years account for a disproportionate fraction of HIV transmission. It is a suggestion of how PANGEA can assist sites and PIs with disseminating PANGEA phylogenetic results to country MoHs and other stakeholders.

Call for applications to establish networks of epidemic and pandemic sciences research excellence across Africa

The Pandemic Sciences Institute (PSI) at the University of Oxford, the Science for Africa Foundation, and the Mastercard Foundation have released a call for applications to establish networks of epidemic and pandemic sciences research excellence across Africa.      

The Epidemic Science Leadership and Innovation Networks (EPSILONs) aim to nurture and promote world-class epidemic and pandemic sciences research and innovation in Africa.  

The networks will be led by an outstanding African investigator based at an African research institution and will bring together multiple organisations in a consortium for up to six years. Each consortium will be awarded core funding of up to USD $4 million.  

Find out more and apply.
