B3Africa AGM and Workshop at the Uppsala Health Summit, Sweden, June 2018

The third B3Africa AGM took place in Uppsala, Sweden, from 11th to 13th June 2018. During this meeting, hosted by SLU, B3Africa partners reflected on progress and achievements made over the three years of the project and discussed about the sustainability of the eB3Kit.
