  • Description

    Outstanding progress in medical education and training in Africa is highlighted in a report to be presented at a World Health Organisation committee meeting in Conakry, Guinea, from September 20-27.

    The author of the report - Dr Alfred Quenum of Dahomey, W.H.O. Regional director for Africa - stresses that basic health services continues to be one of the Organisation's major concerns. In an interview given to Michael Roe - chief of the Visnews Africa Service - he said sanitary conditions in much of Africa are still such that long-term surveillance measures have been taken.

    Dr Quenum says the cholera threat underlined the importance of health training and education in African countries.

    This month's meeting of W.H.O.'s Regional Committee for Africa is taking place in Conakry at the invitation of the Guinean Government. In this interview Dr Quenum says this fact is significant following last year's Press report of a difference of opinion between W.H.O. and the Republic of Guinea.
