GHPN awarded grant to expand telepathology efforts

In 2021, the GHPN launched a telepathology node in Pakistan that has continued successfully for over one year and continues to grow. To expand these efforts, the GHPN has been awarded a $10,000 grant from the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) Council for International Veterinary Medical Education (CIVME)with an additional $10,000 in matching funds from the Davis-Thompson Foundation. This funding will be used to expand telepathology nodes to two additional countries, Indonesia and Ghana, working with collaborators Dr. Putri Pandarangga from Universitas Nusa Cendana (UNDANA), Kupang, Nusa Tenggara Timur, Indonesia, and Dr. Ben Emikpe from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi, Ghana. Funding will also allow for the expansion of telepathology efforts in Pakistan, with collaborator and GHPN member Dr. Ishtiaq Ahmed. Funding will be used to provide equipment to each location, including microscopes and cameras, and travel to each region to hold workshops on veterinary diagnostics and adult learning.
