2022/2023 G-WAC-KNUST PhD Scholarships for West African Students


2022/2023 G-WAC-KNUST PhD Scholarships for West African Students

The German-West African Centre for Global Health and Pandemic Prevention (G-WAC) hosted by the College of Health Sciences, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is accepting applications from students.

The G-WAC-KNUST collaborates with the Technical University Berlin, Charité-University of Medicine Berlin, and the University of Bonn, Germany to solve the existential threat of pandemics to the health and welfare of people through trans- and inter-disciplinary research projects.

They do this by focusing on both the main drivers of pandemics (e.g. health impact of wild habitat encroachment, extensive agriculture and climate change, transfer of pathogens from wild animals to humans) and the key pillars of resilient health systems in the WHO framework (e.g. effective governance, sustainable financing mechanisms, appropriate human resource capacity, availability of essential medicines and technology, reliable health information, and responsive health service delivery) using One Health approaches.
