About FIT2

In 2016 the Government of Australia contributed funding to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) (Funds in Trust 2 [FIT2]) to support the training of East African and Indo-Pacific researchers at research institutes. In 2017 BVGH matched trainees with host organizations and developed plans for their research projects and training. Nine LMIC scientists were selected to participate, and six sabbaticals have been completed to date.

Sabbaticals focus on neglected tropical diseases, malaria, and tuberculosis research and product development.
