The National Data Management Centre for Health hosted a mentor-based training on scientific writing from the 28th of March to the 1st of April 2022 at Adama. Accompanied by different lectures and practical sessions, the training aimed to achieve three major objectives: building the capacity of staff members, producing high-quality manuscripts and evidence, and creating long-living collaboration between senior researchers and the center.
At the dawn of the current Ethiopian fiscal year, the center prioritized eight topics to be investigated based on a demand assessment made at the Ministry of Health. As a result, concept notes have been produced, and junior researchers of NDMC are teamed up with the invited senior researchers to work on the topics.
Experts of high caliber have participated in the mentor-based training. In that regard, Professor Yifru Berhan (former minister of MOH), Professor Taddesse (Gondar University), Dr. Mezgbu (Gondar University), Professor Getinet (International Primary Health Care Ethiopia), Dr. Zewdie (Jimma University), Mr. Bedilu (Debre Tabor University) have been assigned to be mentors for researchers of NDMC.
