News on Venezuela public health

Our first training was complete!!!

As part of our objectives, VeConVen want to provide training and networking opportunities for a new generation of Venezuelan scientists recruited from early career researchers currently based in Venezuela, as well as those from the Venezuelan diaspora currently working elsewhere in
Latin America and the world. 

For three months, members of the Venezuelan Science Incubator were reciving a training on molecular techniques from our Colombian partners from the "Centro de Investigaciones en Microbiología y Biotecnología" (CIMBIUR).


This training has an important impact in improving the capacity of developing projects in the country with objectives of molecular testing and surveillance. This will also allow researchers to use the techniques learned in the field and in laboratories to help patients in affected communities with neglected tropical diseases, such as: leishmaniasis, SARS-CoV-2, American trypanosomiasis, arboviral disease alongside the zoonotic component of each one of them.

To access the directory, please follow this link (we kindly ask you to register on GVH):

Our colleagues from TDR has supported the development of a Global Atlas of Medical Entomology Schooling (GAMES), which lists a total of 126 medical entomology courses offered both on-campus and through distance learning in 32 countries across all WHO regions, covering seven languages. The freely available directory was developed in collaboration with the GVH and ARCTEC at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), following the mapping of courses available globally. WHO’s Department of Control of Neglected Tropical Diseases and the WHO Global Malaria Programme have also reviewed the directory and provided recommendations. For each course, session dates, course outline, fees, language of instruction, and responsible managers are listed.
