POSTPONED - BactiVac 3rd Annual Network Meeting

24th March 2020 to 27th March 2020

As you will be aware, the situation with the COVID-19 outbreak has been evolving rapidly in recent days, with outbreaks declared in several countries. Due to the escalating international situation, and the potential risk to our members and to the wider population in Kenya, it is with great sadness and regret that we have postponed the meeting to a future date.
