I spent a few days in Pretoria to explore partnerships for Peoples-uni. Many possibilities presented themselves and I am most grateful to my host, Flavia Senkubuge from the School of Health Systems and Public Health at the University of Pretoria for all the contacts she created.
We are very excited to announce our new mobile-friendly website which is now live – please go and visit it, and share it with colleagues who may benefit from Peoples-uni courses and Programmes. Our new flyer is also available on the site. On completion of the summer semester (2017a), the number of our Masters-level award graduates rose to 130 – Congratulations to our latest four graduates from Ghana, Kenya, and Nigeria! They will again join our now sizable Alumni Network where our Masters-level Programme alumni are supporting each other to undertake research and the next steps of their public health careers.
We are very sorry to announce the death of Alec Tice who has been a Trustee, Treasurer and Great Friend of Peoples-uni. He developed much of the governance and financial processes that enable Peoples-uni to do it's work, and supervised the award of student bursaries. Alec was passionate about ensuring people have educational opportunities, and took great delight in the progress and success of the Peoples-uni students.
Donald Salami is one of our former graduates who now tutors the HIV/AIDS module.
