Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Promote mobility between South-South and South-North for improving level of researchers, staff and students through a platform.

METHODS: The methodology is based a filling of a questionnaire about offer or demand. Material is composed a computer connected Internet.

RESULT: we registered about 203 demands and 31 offers from partners.43 mobilities were executed completely.

CONCLUSION: The results indicate a real need of mobility for researchers and health professionals in Africa. The important number of mobility demands made by external researchers and professionals (from outside the AFRICA BUILD Consortium) may be constrained by the difficulty to find adequate funding.
