  • Description

    Ivory Coast President Felix Houphouet-Boigny received delegates to the PanAfrican Psychiatry Conference a special audience in the Presidential Place in Abidjan on friday (4 July).

    The meeting took place shortly after the closing session of the five-day Psychiatry Conference in the Ivory Coast capital.

    Delegates from some twenty-seven countries -- including twenty African nations -- attended the sessions. Priority was given by the conference to the re-organisation of psychiatric structures within Africa, and the integration of traditional treatments with modern methods.

    The delegates also discussed the setting-up of uniform psychiatric training courses throughout the African continent, and the need to encourage more medical students to take up psychiatric study.
