2014 Regional Workshop

In July 2014, a regional workshop was held to introduce regional partners from Kenya and Uganda to the project team and share findings on national SANA reports from the three countries involved in the East Africa GEOHealth project. The findings from these SANA reports as well as the outcomes of the workshop will service as the foundation for the establishment of the GEOHealth Hub for East Africa, by outlining areas of focus for research and training around environmental and occupational health.
