The two organizations exchanged the MOU to expand programs for nurturing professional human resources in health, healthcare, and vaccine, and to increase efficiency in the continuous development of international professionals through education and R&D cooperation between the two organizations, officials said.
IVI국제백신연구소 and KOHI plan to jointly host and support the operation of the International Vaccinology Course, a weeklong course for public health and vaccine professionals from countries worldwide, international fora and expert symposiums to develop and operate programs for nurturing careers in health and healthcare and vaccines.
