Touch Down In Tamale!

The Surgical Informatics team arrive in Tamale, Ghana for the next HealthyR Notebooks course

The Surgical Informations groups are delighted to be visiting Tamale in Ghana to deliver our flagship HealthyR Notebooks course as part of our Wellcome Trust grant, ‘HealthyR Notebooks: Democratising open and reproducible data analysis in resource-poor
environments’
.

We’re being made extremely welcome by our hosts Professor Stephen Tabiri and Benard Ofori Appiah from the NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Global Surgery hub in Ghana.

Over the next few days we’ll be establishing a data centre in Ghana with the provision of 15 laptops and training 20 local delegates to use R for healthcare data analysis. This will build capacity for future data driven research in partnership with the NIHR Global Surgery Unit in Ghana.
