Visit of The Association of Commonwealth University (ACU) Summer School 2019 at Natec Medical

This year The Association of Commonwealth Universities identified Mauritius as their destination of choice for their Summer School programmed of 2019 which focused on the theme ‘Public Health: from a Small Island State to the Global Community’. The programme, led by University of Mauritius subject specialists focused on four major components of public health, namely:

  • Education, detection, prevention and control of disease outbreak, community centered approaches
  • Research in health/medicine
  • Innovation in health: e-health and big data
  • Health economics, policies and civil society

Students were lead to Mauritian hospitals and laboratories, to work together on challenging group projects, to share their experiences of public health challenges in their home countries and to immerse themselves in the Mauritian culture and way of life.

A team of 55 International students visited Natec Medical ltd on July 18th as our enterprise was chosen amongst other companies for their field trip.
