Laying a foundation for Fieldworkers’ bursary at MLW

My thoughts about fieldworkers at Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Trust (MLW) grew into a passion in 2013 when Dorcas visited the institution; because of her visit Science Communication department organized a meeting for her to interact with this group of staff who since then were working in their different projects without knowing each other’s role.
