Discussion about the new MITS Center: This fall, a MITS training center will open its doors at the University of Nairobi School of Medicine -- Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH). The center will be a hub for pathologists and pathology technicians to learn the latest techniques and best practices on the MITS procedure, dramatically expanding the accessibility and availability of MITS training in Africa and beyond. To help launch the center, the MITS Surveillance Alliance Secretariat recently conducted a MITS Training of Trainers Workshop for KNH staff in collaboration with the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). We also interviewed Dr. Edwin Walong about the new center.
