Short description

This project builds on the experiences from the regional ALF-project on hospital effluent described above, but aims to apply and transfer the technology to other countries, particularly those where regional surveillance systems are weak. During 2016 we will start working in Kenya (Dr Carl-Johan Svensson) and we plan to expand to several more countries. The plan is to involve medical students during their exam-projects.
