Summary: We have trained close to 1,000 health care workers on understanding and managing COVID-19 disease. Dr. Richard Lessells, ID specialist of Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine and KRISP at UKZN has been training health care workers since January 2020. The UKZN Coronavirus War room has been instrumental in working with the NHLS and the National Department of Health in this important activity in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. All of this work was done pro-bono and we do need your support to continue. More information, http://www.krisp.org.za
KRISP has been created by the coordinated effort of the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN), the Technology Innovation Agency (TIA) and the South African Medical Research Countil (SAMRC).
