Vision and Mission

The Department of Infectious Diseases is committed to providing leadership and excellence in clinical care of the indigent while providing a high standard of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and training. In addition, the department is actively working at developing a locally relevant and internationally recognized research agenda. To meet the above mandate in the face of limited capacity, the Department has fostered close links and collaborations with institutes of academic excellence both locally and internationally. The ID Department has close ties with the Department of Infectious Diseases at Harvard University and John Hopkins University, Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Cincinnati in the US, the HIV Unit at Kings College London in the UK and more recently an Australian research group based in Perth and Melbourne.
