The AFRICA BUILD Project is a Coordination Action aiming to improve health research and education in Africa through Information and Communication Technologies. With this purpose, different methods will be carried out: knowledge transfer, e-learning or know-how, among others, to promote the creation of virtual communities to strengthen educational and research centers in Africa.

In the first stages of the Project, support and training will be provided by the European partners of the project. In later stages collaboration among African partners is expected to improve the quality of their health research and education centers. Successful actions will be extended to other centers to create sustainable learning and research opportunities.
