PATS Congress 2016

PATS was formed to create a representative African respiratory society for the continent and to address the high burden of respiratory illnesses in Africa.

The 5th Association of Research Administrators in Africa (ARAA) Annual General Conference will take place in Kampala, Uganda from 2nd to 4th December, 2014.

The purpose of the ARAA is to serve as a professional forum for Research Administrators in Africa for discussions, trainings, analysis, and benchmarking best practices as well as providing solutions to global health research and development challenges. The idea of the ARAA is based on the need for Research Administrators in Africa to organize themselves, share experiences and accumulated knowledge in dealing with the research and administrative challenges. African issues are best and most cost-effectively tackled with solutions from Africa. The development of cost effective, inclusive, and viable initiatives like the ARAA hub will play a significant role in fostering a sustainable research environment in Africa.
