The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) and the Fogarty International Center present the 2015 David E. Barmes Global Health Lecture:"Medical Research and Capacity Building for Development: The Experience of Rwanda," delivered by Rwandan Health Minister, Dr. Agnes Binagwaho. The lecture will take place on Wednesday, July 29, at 11:30 a.m. in Masur Auditorium, Clinical Center (Building 10).

Dr. Agnes Binagwaho, Minister of Health of the Republic of Rwanda, has spoken frequently about the value of research and capacity building at her country’s medical and academic institutions in helping relieve the disease burden that weighs on Rwandan and other LMIC populations.

Before becoming minister in 2011, she had served as permanent secretary of health, as executive secretary of Rwanda’s National AIDS Control Commission and as a physician in public hospitals for over 15 years. She trained in pediatrics, specialized in emergency neonatology and the treatment of HIV/AIDS, and earned her doctoral degree from the University of Rwanda in 2014. She holds positions at Harvard University and Dartmouth College, where she teaches courses in health equity, HIV/AIDS, information and communication technologies for health, and pediatric care delivery systems.

NIH supports a range of research and training collaborations with Rwandan scientists, such as clinical trials of an HIV vaccine, development of research skills to study cervical and other cancers, and investigations of how intimate partner violence affects health.

The David E. Barmes Global Health Lecture series honors the late David Edward Barmes, special expert for international health in the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR).

Prior to joining NIDCR, Dr. Barmes, a public health dentist and epidemiologist by training, served in senior management positions related to oral health, health promotion, and non-communicable diseases at the World Health Organization in Geneva. The lecture series was established by the NIDCR and Fogarty in 2001 to honor his lifelong dedication to research aimed at improving health for those in low-income countries.
