The virtual environment (you can acess here) will be a knowledge sharing space, which aims to strengthen networks and increase Fiocruz's international presence, contributing to improve regional and global public health research capacities. The launch will take place at Fiocruz campus, in Rio de Janeiro, during the International Seminar of the Fiocruz Internationalization Program (Print - Fiocruz / Capes).

Fiocruz is the most prominent Institution of Science and Technology in Health in Latin America, with a large expertise in teaching and researching, and solid history of cooperation with Latin American and Portuguese speaking African countries.
