Guest lectureship of Prof. Hajo Zeeb at Africa University, Zimbabwe
In the framework of an existing cooperation between BIPS, the University of Bremen and the Africa University (AU), Prof. Hajo Zeeb conducted several guest lectures during a 3-day visit to the AU in Mutare, picturesquely situated in the Eastern Highlands of Zimbabwe. AU is a private university with a well-developed program in the Health Sciences, where degrees both at Bachelor and Master of Public Health level are offered. Prof. Zeeb held teaching sessions as well as a public lecture and got a very good overview of the ambitious plans of AU in discussions with the University leadership as well as colleagues from the Health Sciences. Options for future intensified collaboration with respect to doctoral studies and health research were discussed with Prof. Munashe Furusa, the AU Vice Chancellor, and lecturer Dr. Iris Shiripinda who visited the University of Bremen und BIPS in May 2017.
