Visit of the Minister of Health of Burkina Faso

May 19, 2010 - Lyon (France)


The Minister of Health of Burkina Faso visited Fondation Mérieuxon Wednesday 19 May 2010 as part of the RESAOLAB programme.

In 2008, Fondation Mérieux and the Health Ministries of Burkina Faso, Senegal and Mali set up a joint project to increase the potential of diagnostic laboratories in these three countries of West Africa. The Agence Française de Développement (AFD) has confirmed its financial support for this project.

The aim of this project, named RESAOLAB, representing 4 million Euros over a three-year period, is to develop and support the network of biomedical analysis laboratories in its continuous training projects for laboratory personnel. It is a continuation of the Action Biomali programme, implemented by Fondation Mérieux since 2005 in Mali and that came to an end in late 2009.
