Thanks to a donation campaign, a total amount of 2360 Euros has been handed over to the family of Prof. Noble Ephraim Banadda.
“Besides the pride that we can actually start this international research project together today“, said project leader Prof. Dr. habil. Michael Kauffeld at the SophiA kick-off meeting at the HKA in October 2021, “we also mourn the loss of Professor Noble Ephraim Banadda”.
As a professor of biosystems development at the University of Makerere in Uganda, he was our first contact in Africa and one of the key promoters of SophiA, convincing experts in African ministries of health and various organisations to join the ambitious SophiA project.
A man who lived up to his name and whose untimely death at the hands of Covid-19 also further underlines the importance of SophiA.
