Participants of Global Health Security Agenda program visit IVI
On August 17, IVI welcomed participants of the Infectious Disease Field Management Training (IDFMT) program, which is supported by KOICA as part of the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) program; as well as students from Yonsei University’s 2018 Master’s Degree Program in Global Health Security Capacity Building. IVI Director General Dr. Jerome Kim and scientists debriefed participants on IVI and its research programs in developing countries and shared knowledge regarding vaccines, immunization, and global public health.
Coordinated by the Center for Global Development of the Yonsei University Health System, the month-long IDFMT program is designed to contribute to the prevention and spread of infectious diseases and to help establish a network between the participants’ organizations and disease-related organizations in Korea. This year’s participants included government officials from Ethiopia, Cameroon, Rwanda, Congo, Kenya, Vietnam, Indonesia, Mongolia, Tanzania and East Timor.
