10th Leishmaniasis East Africa Platform (LEAP) – Sudan

[ February 2008 ]
Sudan

The 10th Leishmaniasis East Africa Platform (LEAP) meeting took place in Khartoum, Sudan. A solid clinical trial network is being built, thanks to the serious commitment of all members. Capacity building is still ongoing, with one site in Kenya to be built and another in Uganda to be strengthened. In May 2008, DNDi and its partners inaugurated a new treatment centre in Gondar, Ethiopia, with a 24 bed capacity.
