Welcome to CYSTINET - Africa

Learn more about the project

We are very proud of our successful first International CYSTINET-Africa Conference with over 100 attendees from more than 20 countries and substantial political engagement with the attendance of the deputy Minister of Health from Tanzania among other officials. The presentations and discussions spanned from basic science research over clinical management to cross-cutting issues like developments in the IT sector and translation of the research results into policy and practice. With our latest success in mind we would like to wish you many professional and private highlights in 2020 and hope that we will meet again for more stimulating discussions in 2020.
