Laboratory Twinning Programme in the Region


Each twinning project is a partnership between a particular World Organisation for Animal Health (WOAH) Reference Centre (which may be an official WOAH Reference Laboratory or Collaborating Centre) and a Candidate Centre. The Reference Centre provides the Candidate Centre with technical support, guidance, and training. Laboratory Twinning Projects provide mutual benefits for Parent and Candidate Institutes, including the creation of joint research opportunities, establishment of research networks and sustainable capacity building.

This page provides information regarding the Laboratory Twinning Projects completed/ongoing in the region.
