The Centre for Geographic Medicine Research - Coast, Kilifi County was abuzz with activity last week.  KEMRI - Wellcome Trust Research Programme was celebrating 25 years of Health Research in Kenya. The climax of the event saw the commissioning of the Mbuyuni Training Complex by H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust complex in Kilifi on Friday, October 24th 2014.

Preceding last week’s celebrations in Kilifi, there have been a series of events aimed at informing the public and sharing our work and its impact in the community. Some of these included roadshows, soccer tournaments and exhibitions.
