（英）Infectious diseases: clinical and laboratory diagnosis
Suez Canal University
Although, the African economy is getting healthy due to rising overseas investment following the conclusion of regional disputes, and soaring prices for mineral resources, Yet, the lives of people living in Africa continue to be threatened by a range of factors including substantially rising oil and food prices around the globe, disputes and famine around the African continent, infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis, and the problems of cumulative debt and low school attendance rates.
The course is designed to provide opportunities for participants to enhance their current technical skills in clinical and laboratory medicine and research capabilities in the field of infectious diseases. The course will help maximizing the contribution of participants to their countries health development, especially in the field of protection against infectious diseases, through the clinical
*To help health professionals to participate effectively in fighting the selected infectious disease threatening their home countries.
*To orient the participants with the tools needed to clinical diagnosis selected infectious diseases.
*To train the participants with the tools needed for laboratory diagnosis of selected infectious diseases.
*To guide the participants how to use the basic epid
By the end of the course, the participants are expected to:
1. Acquire information of fundamental immunology that helps them to understand the immune response to infectious diseases.
2. Define the principles of immune response against virus, bacteria, and parasites.
3. Apply basic knowledge and usage of standard immunological tests to diagnosis infectious diseases.
4. Perform several immunological tests that range from simple routine tests to advanced sophisticated techniques.
5. Discuss the pathophysiology of infectious diseases and apply this knowledge in diagnosis and prevention.
6. Understand the WHO strategies and guidelines to control selected infectious diseases.
The program will be given in the form of six modules: Introduction of immunology of infectious diseases, Diagnosis and management of viral hepatitis, Human immunodeficiency Virus, Malaria, and Tuberculosis, Neglected diseases and module approaching managerial skills needed. The second to fifth modules will deal with epidemiology, natural history of the disease, pathogenesis, transmission, criteria for clinical diagnosis, clinical staging, laboratory diagnosis treatment, and the WHO policies for control and prevention. In this last module, concepts of “Management” and “Quality” will be taught to ensure the implementation processes, which deal with important topics for managing team, workforce, equipment and physical facilities. Practical laboratory sessions for diagnosis will be conduct.
Methodology used in conducting the Course:
- Introductory theoretical lectures
- Laboratory diagnostic sessions
- Small group discussions (4 - 5 participants/dynamic groups)
- Presentations by the participants
- Mini projects
- Field visit (hospital, and primary health care unit).
- Workshops (research methodology, Leadership and total quality management)
The Japanese Government will cover 85% of the total cost for training in addition to technical guidance through the dispatch of Japanese expert.
The SCU will provide the staffs and the needed facility for the program, teaching equipment, and training laboratories.
EFTCA will pay 15% of the total cost of the training course
- The policies of the government of Japan and Egypt won't be changed drastically.

- The diplomatic relations between Sub-Sahara African countries and Egypt won't change.
The Scientific Center for Human Development, Suez Canal University (SCHD/SCU) is the institute responsible for conducting the program. SCU was established in 1976 as governmental university, the basic philosophy of Suez Canal University is that the goal of true education must be to produce young adults who are both qualified and eager to render service to the community, and the SCU is thus the first community-oriented educational institution in Egypt. The program will be conducted in the facilities of the faculty of medicine, Suez Canal University (FOM/SCU) and the experts taking part in it are from its staff. The fact that FOM/SCU is the first faculty in Egypt to be accredited reflects the unique nature of this institute as house of expertise when it comes to Quality management. SCHD/SCU was partner for JICA in conducting 19 courses in different fields over 14 years through which its staff gained the needed experiences and qualifications to carry on the administration of such program.
