BNNICD offers postgraduate programmes leading to University of Gezira High Diploma, Master and PhD awards, together with a variety of the institute’s own diplomas, certificates and certificates for successful completion of short courses.

To be a centre of excellence, for training and research in the control of communicable diseases, for national, regional and international health professionals

To reduce the impact of communicable diseases by research and training of health and other personnel

Research BNNICD has been at the forefront of research into infectious and debilitating diseases in Sudan. Its research continues to contribute to health policy and practice in Sudan and regionally. It has guided the Sudan national policy for malaria case management (2001) and the malaria vector control strategies (2007). It also contributed to formulation of Sudan national strategic plan for control of HIV and AIDS. BNNICD’ research is benefiting from a broad range and depth of expertise integrating laboratory, clinical, population and social sciences. Examples of active research projects: Identification and Distribution of vectors (mosquitoe, sand fly, ticks, snails), Evaluating the efficiency of Long Lasting insecticide treated nets (LLTNs), emerging viral infections: MERS CoV in dromedary camels and camel workers in Eastern Sudan, Integrated control of communicable diseases, Behavioural aspects of STIs/HIV/AIDS transmission among key populations, Utilization of Insecticide treated bed nets, Vector resistance to insecticides, Determinants and distribution of typhoid, brucellosis, soil transmitted helminthes, TB, hepatitidaes and NTDs (leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis, mycetoma), household drinking water and sanitation services. BNNICD’s national and regional reputation and the caliber of its research outputs has facilitated active partnerships with many international institutions worldwide. Beside WHO BNNICD has long collaboration with GFATM, UNDP, UNICEF and UNFPA. BNNICD’s Joint research projects: Insecticide resistance in Anopheles gambiae (2007). Chloroquine (CQ) and Sulphadoxine / Pyrimethamine (SP) Efficacy in the Treatment of Acute Uncomplicated Plasmodium. falciparum malaria and the prevalence of genetic mutations in Central Sudan (supported by a grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research–Netherlands Foundation for the Advancement of Tropical Research (NWO-WOTRO WB 93-388) and by a grant from the Knowledge and Innovation Fund of the Royal Tropical Institute (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) (2001 – 2002). Antimalral therapeutic efficacy testing (TET), Institute of Specific Prophylaxis and Tropical Medicine, Center for Physiology and Pathophysiology, Medical University Vienna, Austria. Plasmodium vivax : Diagnosis, Molecular Characterization and Antifolate Resistant Markers (Pasteur Institute, Tahran- Iran 2012 – 2013). Research and training (malaria case management, management of severe malaria (Mahidol School of Tropical Medicine, Bangko Thialand, 2008 – 2009). BNNICD research also addressed the identification and Distribution of vector spp (mosquitoe, sand fly, ticks, snails); evaluating the efficiency of Long Lasting insecticide treated nets (LLTNs); household drinking water and sanitation services; acceptability and utilization of Lifestraw, water point mapping, integrated control of communicable diseases; behavioural aspects of STIs/HIV/AIDS transmission among key populations (vulnerable and most at risk); utilization of insecticide treated bed nets; vector resistance to insecticides; determinants and distribution of typhoid, brucellosis, Soil transmitted helminthes, TB, hepatides and NTDs (leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis, mycetoma). As well it enjoys membership of many networks, e.g East Africa Research Network (EARN), Scientists Networked for Outcomes from Water and Sanitation (SNOWS) Consortium (supported by Wellcome Trust). Joint research projects include: Insecticide resistance in Anopheles gambiae (2007). Chloroquine (CQ) and Sulphadoxine / Pyrimethamine (SP) efficacy in the treatment of acute uncomplicated Plasmodium. falciparum malaria and the prevalence of genetic mutations in Central Sudan (grant from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research–Netherlands Foundation for the Advancement of Tropical Research (NWO-WOTRO WB 93-388) and by a grant from the Knowledge and Innovation Fund of the Royal Tropical Institute (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) (2001 – 2002). Antimalral therapeutic efficacy testing (TET), Institute of Specific Prophylaxis and Tropical Medicine, Center for Physiology and Pathophysiology, Medical University Vienna, Austria. Plasmodium vivax. Diagnosis, Molecular characterization and antifolate resistant markers (Pasteur Institute, Tahran- Iran 2012 – 2013). Research and training (malaria case management, management of severe malaria (Mahidol School of Tropical Medicine, Bangko Thialand, 2009 – 2008). See annex 3 for a list of BNNICD research abstracts and titles of students’ research)

Consultations BNNICD is offering consultations in its areas of expertise to the Ministry of Health and related sectors. Examples include development of AIDS control programme in higher education institutions, malaria case management teacher’s guide for Sudanese medical schools, Field manuals for prevention of HIV & AIDS among key populations and training guides for trainers in Sudan AIDS Programme and NGOs.

Education and Training BNNICD offers postgraduate programmes leading to University of Gezira High Diploma, Master and PhD awards, together with a variety of the institute’s own diplomas, certificates and certificates for successful completion of short courses. Education and training programmes address different aspects of Communicable Diseases, such as leadership and management, clinical and laboratory diagnosis, case management, control and prevention, early preparedness and rapid response to epidemics, biostatistics, research methods, ethics and research management. BNNICD’s affiliation to UOG, a worldwide leader in community – oriented education renders its certificates to be accredited by ministry of higher education and ensures delivery of its programmes by highly experienced academics, researchers and professionals

Service delivery: BNNICD provides, in collaboration with related bodies, diagnostic and therapeutic services on different Communicable Diseases. One such example is the specialized mycetoma center established by the institute, in collaboration with the Gezira state and Federal Ministries of Health. The mycetoma centre benefits from financial support of the Zakat Chamber and Health Insurance Corporation at the Ministry of Social Welfare. Diagnostic and curative health service is also provided, as needed, as part of research projects implemented by the institute’s staff or postgraduate students. The center is now delivering medical and surgical service for mycetoma cases from Gezira and neighbouring states.
