All the acronyms!!! TIBA stands for Tackling Infections to Benefit Africa. It is also the Swahili word for “to cure infection”. And AGM, well that’s a more common one, no need for explanations there. So, it was time for TIBA’s first annual general meeting. The venue was Durban, South Africa, one of the nine TIBA partner countries. The University of Kwazulu-Natal had been preparing for the meeting for some time. This was quite an undertaking with contributors coming from far afield.
