Last week I returned to Uganda to hand over the TB project to Grania (far right, pictured with Ian Clarke CEO of International Hospital Kampala and Bosco Byekwaso microbiology lab technician).
The project is on track to market and supply a highly sensitive rapid culture test for TB by the end of this year. Grania will also be talking to local movers and shakers about upgrading Tb diagnostics in Uganda as a whole.
The work is being sponsored by the Suubi Trust (suubitrust.org.uk/) in England.
After some serious frustrations in June and July it was good to end the year in Uganda on a high note, leaving with lasting good memories of people, experiences and landscapes.
