WHO has received financial support of 384,086 EUR from Anesvad Foundation.
This is a 4 years (2021-2024) funding which will support activities of the Buruli ulcer Laboratory Network (#BULABNET) in the areas of :

  • Expert technical support visits to member laboratories;
  • Capacity building of network members;
