University Cooperation with Tunesia
The Heidelberg Institute of Global Health conducted a training-of-trainers workshop on “Decision making in Public Health” in Tunis between 23-26 October 2019. The joint event aimed at strengthening Public Health capacities in Tunisia brought together 20 medical professionals from the Observatoire National des Maladies Nouvelles et Émergentes (OMNME = National Observatory for New and Emerging Diseases), the Ministry of Health, the University of Tunis and regional health centers.
One year ago, all of us decided to start a journey in which we probably needed to leave our homes, friends, and family. Even if the main goal was to learn in the classes, nothing can be compared to what I have learned from the experiences with all my classmates and teachers. During this year, I learnt from the power of the social fights.
