The Periperi U partnership is convening an intensive, two-week Risk Methods School from 10-22 September 2018 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Hosted by Ardhi University, the School will offer courses in collaboration with the World Health Organisation, United Nations Development Programme and Stellenbosch University’s African Doctoral Academy.

Established in 2006, with five original members, the partnership has grown to include twelve universities from Algiers to Antanarivo, with institutions in Algeria, Cameroon Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda.
