Since the creation of the foundation forty years ago, it has been dedicated to controlling infectious diseases in developing countries. Today, it is present at the heart of infectious outbreaks in Africa, Asia, Haïti and Madagascar. The aim of this letter is to outline our actions in the fields of applied research, training and scientific information, strengthening health structures and support for patients and their families.
This letter is a link with the New Internet site of Fondation Mérieux which was launched at the beginning of September. I invite you to discover it. You will find in the site information on the different partnerships initiated by Fondation Mérieux all over the world, in order to respond to the specific problems of public health in developing countries."
