In a bid to respond to calls for financial support made by the organisers of the upcoming Research Dissemination Conference, the United General Insurance (UGI) has supported the Kamuzu University of Health Sciences Research Dissemination Conference with MK2 million.
Speaking after the symbolic presentation of the cheque, Acting Director for Students Affairs at KUHeS, Dr. Benjamin Kumwenda commended UGI for the gesture which he said would go a long way in helping the organisers of the conference address some of the financial challenges.
“On behalf of KUHeS and the Research Dissemination Organising committee, I am so thankful for this support and would like to urge other partners to assist us” He said.
Chief Operating Officer for UGI MacDonald Chibwe said their support was in response to the calls for support that his office got earlier this year from KUHeS. He said as UGI they appreciate the work that KUHeS is doing in research and training medical personnel in the country.
“Being a fully-fledged university, KUHeS has a lot of projects going on hence it needs partners who can support it towards the attainment of common goals and as UGI we are committed to make such contributions and assist wherever possible.” He said.
KUHeS will hold its first Research Dissemination Conference on 24th-25th November, 2022 at KUHeS, Blantyre campus along Mahatma Gandhi Road. The conference will be held under the theme “Excellence for life: through multidisciplinary research and innovations”.
