2ND AFRICE CONFERENCE - (JUNE 18TH-19TH, 2015)

Upcoming 2nd AFRICE Conference to be held on
18-19 June, 2015 at the Kenya Science Campus

    June 18, 2015 – June 19, 2015

Infectious Disease Symposium

 

 

 

 

 

Theme: Antimicrobial use and resistance in Eastern Africa

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a global health security threat. AMR threatens the effective prevention and treatment of an ever-increasing range of infections caused by bacteria, parasites, viruses and fungi.

Resistance has been observed in organisms causing prevalent infections (e.g. multi drug resistant TB, extremely drug resistant TB, and multi-drug resistant Neisseria gonorrhoea). Microorganisms resistant to antibiotics in animals have also been shown to spread to human populations. Poor surveillance in health and animal sectors, weak laboratory support and low regulatory capacity in many countries has led to this dire situation.

The prevalence of artemisinin resistant Plasmodium falciparum strains is gradually increasing. Parasite resistance has been detected in some South East Asian countries. Resistance is occurring as a result of poor treatment practices, inadequate patient adherence to prescribed antimalarial regimens, the use of oral artemisinin based monotherapies and substandard drugs. Currently there is no available antimalarial drug with the same level of efficacy and tolerability as artemisinin based combination therapies. A global spread of resistance will seriously harm our ability to control malaria in the region.

Research that generates reliable data is the foundation for sound global strategies and public health actions. However, there is a major gap in knowledge concerning the magnitude of antibacterial and antimalarial resistance in Eastern Africa. Identifying the source, geographical distribution and significance of antimicrobial resistance is a critical component in control of drug resistance.

The Unit of Clinical Infectious Disease at the Department of Clinical Medicine and Therapeutics, School of Medicine, University of Nairobi and the Infectious Diseases Society of Kenya (IDSK) invite you to participate in the upcoming symposium to be held in Nairobi from 18 to 19 June 2015.

African Mobile Money Research (AMMREC)- 2012

Background

The uptake of mobile money (MM) especially in developing countries has been tremendous. The impact of the uptake has equally been felt including increasing financial inclusion and changing people’s lives. There is need to explore ways to further increase the scale and sophistication of MM. evaluating adoption; impact and design of various MM applications need a solid research foundation. Kenya’s success of M-Pesa and the general MM sub-sector has continued to set the pace for the rest of the world.

The School of Computing and Informatics (SCI) wishes to launch an interdisciplinary MM research team with a clear aim of enhancing MM adoption and impact in Africa. This is part of execution of the research strategy of the Multi-disciplinary Centre of Excellence in Computing for Societal Development (MCCSD), a centre of excellence associated with the School of Computing and Informatics in the University of Nairobi that carries out multidisciplinary research in collaboration with internal and external partners.

  • AMMREC2012

    April 2, 2012 – April 3, 2012

    Mobile money is an emerging area of research, AMMREC expects to build a Conference Community that will ensure an exciting and high quality networking environment, providing an opportunity for scholars and practitioners to share knowledge and experience with potential research or practitioner partners. By mobile money weinclude mobile money transfer, mobile banking, agency banking, other financial services through a mobile platform.

    AMMREC is a multidisciplinary mobile money research initiative focusing on innovation, adoption and impact. AMMREC is part of the execution of the research strategy of the Multi-Disciplinary Centre of Excellence in Computing for Societal Development (MCCSD), a centre of excellence associated with the School of Computing and Informatics at the University of Nairobi. MCCSD carries out research in collaboration with internal and external partners.

    The vision of AMMREC is to be a global authority in MM research by:

    • Conducting research on relevant areas of MM and building a body of MM research knowledge
    • Supporting development and piloting of MM applications through our students body
    •  Developing capacity in MM research
    • Sharing MM research knowledge generated with researchers, practitioners and policy makers

     

    Objectives of the conference

    • To review progress made in MM and consider opportunities, trends, and growth strategies relevant for this important sector of the industry.
    • To show case innovations in MM beyond money transfers, particularly from the region
    • To highlight the value of research in extending the MM ecosystem
    • To develop networks that can spur growth of MM ecosystem Venue of the conference Kenyatta International Conference Centre has been proposed. It’s central and able to support multiple meetings and exhibitions.
