    A scientific conference on medical research opened on Friday (19 November) in Brazzaville. It was arranged by the World Health Organization (WHO).

    SYNOPSIS: The regional committee of WHO convened the first meeting of African scientists involved in medical research. Experts from several African countries attended. Their prime concern was further development of medical sciences and research work in the region.

    Mr. Afred Quenum from Congo, the regional Director of WHO for Africa, who presided over the conference, stressed an urgent need for better coordination of medical research in the area. He said more local resources and talent should be employed in order to tackle specific health problems of Africa's nations. There are six geographical regions of WHO activities: Africa, Americas, Eastern Mediterranean, Europe, South-East Asia and Western Pacific. Each has its own organization, composed of the member states in the region concerned, and a regional office staffed by experts in various fields of health.
