Welcome to the final DRUSSA Alert for 2014.  It has been an important year, with good progress in Research Uptake planning and implementation at the DRUSSA universities.
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and thank everyone who has contributed to promoting university Research Uptake in sub-Saharan Africa during 2014.   Good wishes from the DRUSSA team in Cape Town, Stellenbosch and London for an enjoyable end-of-year break. 
Research uptake in practice

On in the past few weeks we have profiled two case studies that chronicle the development of a science communication plan for uptake and utilization of research.  The presentation by Associate Professor Yap Boum II, Lab Director and Research Scientist at the MSF Epicentre at Mbarara University of Technology in Uganda, on Rapid Diagnostic Tests for Malaria, can be found as a pdf, HERE
