Research year at Bandim Health Project

The Bandim Health Project is a health and demographic surveillance site in Guinea-Bissau. Surprisingly, their research has shown that vaccines not only protect against the target disease, but also modifies susceptibility to unrelated infections. These so-called “non-specific effects” have major consequences for child survival. The results indicate that the international community can save millions of children in the world’s poorest countries, if the vaccination programs are optimized to take into account both specific and non-specific effects of vaccines.

Bandim Health Project accept applications from pre-graduate students and at times PhD-students, please visit their website for more information.
