Congratulations to Mr Polepole Pascal (centre top photo) a Master of Science Pathology student at the University of Zambia (UNZA) School of Medicine. He is the first awardee of the Moses Sinkala Memorial Zambia Endowed Award
One of the founding fathers of CIDRZ was Dr Moses Sinkala, then Director of the Lusaka Urban District Health Management Team. Sadly Dr Sinkala passed away far too soon, but his friends and colleagues at the UNZA School of Medicine and the University of Alabama at Birmingham Sparkman Center for Global Health wanted to honour his memory and recognize the extraordinary work that Dr Sinkala did to improve public health in Zambia. They have created the Moses Sinkala Memorial Zambia Endowed Award in his memory. This competitive award is available to any post graduate student in the UNZA SOM, and is decided by committee based on research that serves the public health needs of Zambia.
