Project Completion Report: In Tanzania and Vietnam, all data collection has been carried out according to plan. The PAVE project data sets include detailed epidemiological information about pregnant women’s exposure to intimate partner violen ...

Whole Genome Based Diagnostics and Investigations of Infectious Diseases

The advancement of genome technologies holds great promise for improving the quality and speed of public health laboratory investigations, and for decreasing their cost. The latest genome DNA sequencers are now suitable for routine use in public hea ... Project completion report: The project had the following expected outcomes:

1. Education of 2 PhD-students in sequencing technology.
BOTH SUCCESSFULLY DEFENDED IN 31st May 2019.

2. Implementation of the mo ...

Interdisciplinary Project on Climate change in Tropical Aquaculture (iAQUA)

To understand how global warming will affect tropical aquaculture, we will study how a temperature rise from the current value of 27-32 °C to 32-37 °C will affect physiological performance, food conversion efficiency and growth in air-breathing fish ... Project completion report: The project exceeded most of its objectives. We planned for 1 Danish PhD and 4 Vietnamese, but end up with 2 Danish (due to kind funding from Faculty of Science and Technology at AU) and with 5 Vietnamese PhD. We ai ...

The transition is marred by a pervasive legacy of mistrust in institutions of governance, linked to camp experiences and conflict. This is particula ... Project completion report: Land disputes after the armed conflicts are of various kinds. Disputes between neighbours and kin are rampant in areas where people are resettling after displacement. Some of these tensions play out in relation to g ...

Post-conflict primary health care

Primary health care (PHC) often assumes a stable population.  However, in conflict and post-conflict conditions, mobility poses an even more pronounced issue for PHC. In northern Uganda the population was exposed to forced urbanization into IDP ... Midterm Report 2015 PhD fellows who participated in post graduate courses now have the capacity to conduct credible research and are also able to conduct similar trainings and supervise other upcoming researchers.

Training of H ...

Malaria vaccine research and capacity building in Ghana

The applicants have previously collaborated successfully on malaria vaccine development, and have characterised a field site area prioritised by Ghana Health Services. This project builds on these strengths, and will focus on research and capacity b ... Project completion report: The type of malaria that dominates in Africa is also the most serious type of the disease. It continues to cost almost half a million lives a year there, mainly among young children. Progress over the last decade to ...
