Neglected Disease Curriculum

Commitment by

Universities Allied for Essential Medicines

In 2008, Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM) committed to assemble the first open-access neglected disease curriculum by researches and students from Uganda (Makerere University), South Africa (University of Cape Town), and North America (Cornell University, University of British Columbia, and Stanford University, and a number of interested UAEM Chapters). UAEM will facilitate the creation of a course on malaria, hookworm, and African sleeping sickness during the conference. UAEM will then publish this course, the syllabus, and podcasts online for the public at no charge.
