Capacity Building

TIBA’s Capacity Building activities cover technology transfer, study visits and workshops, together with masters, doctoral and postdoctoral training. TIBA’s training and capacity building plans are aligned and integrated with ongoing initiatives by African partners such as the WHO-TDR and DELTAS Africa (Developing Excellence in Leadership Training and Science) and hosted by TIBA partners in Ghana, Kenya, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

TIBA will adhere to the 'Seven Principles for Strengthening Research Capacity in LMICs'.

TIBA offers a range of different training approaches. For short courses, we find that interactive, in-person workshops continue to be a popular and effective model. We consider it very important that all of TIBA’s training is carried out in Africa – this, of itself, helps build capacity to deliver training.
