TBnet is coordinating a project funded by the German Ministry of Health (BMG), aiming to strengthen the cooperation with Armenia in the fight against tuberculosis.

 Activities are summarized in three main pillars:

  1. A four-day TBnet Academy was held in Yerevan in mid May 2017 and provided students and young university graduates from Armenia and other Eastern European countries with the unique opportunity to benefit from the expertise of the group of international TBnet trainers and coaches. During their Academy days, participants gained insights into various European health systems and were trained in different aspects of the fight against tuberculosis, ranging from prevention through diagnostics to therapy. They were also coached in relevant soft skills such as the drafting of a research manuscript or the preparation of scientific presentations. The programme was rounded off by a visit to the National TB hospital and laboratory reference center.
  2. In fall 2017, eight physicians and scientists from Armenia will visit Germany for observerships in Bochum, Borstel, Freiburg, Gauting/München and Homburg/Saar. During their four-week observerships, the young physicians and scientists will be working with experienced TBnet mentors. They will gain in-depth insights into patient management, lab diagnostics and clinical research in Germany to help plan and prepare future cooperations between the two countries. (For more details see the profiles of all participants here.)
  3. The visit of Armenian physicians and scientists in Germany will be concluded with a joint symposium on MDR-TB in Europe, hosted by the TBnet at the Research Center Borstel on 20th October 2017. A link to the symposium programme will follow soon.

This TBnet project is coordinated by Professor Christoph Lange, Research Center Borstel, and supported by LINQ management GmbH.
