Today from Hiiraan Online:
China committed to building 100 health facilities in Africa
Wednesday October 7, 2015
China's Health Minister Li Bin, along with Motsoaledi, made the announcement in Cape Town on Tuesday following the second ministerial forum of the China-Africa Health Development meeting.
Li Bin says they will also continue to send medical teams to work in African countries and recruit some 1 500 medical personnel in the next three years.
The two countries have committed to improving the health systems of African countries in the post-Ebola era, reinforcing laboratory capacity and diagnostic systems, assisting with human resources development in Africa, and improving health infrastructure.
Motsoaledi says the building of the 100 health facilities will go a long way in helping to strengthen the continent's resources.
"We regard the whole issue of Ebola which happened in Africa as ground zero. It exposed us as a continent, that we have health care systems that are not strong. Now we are not preparing for Ebola only, but [the] strengthening of the health care system."
China will also provide scholarships and training courses to public health professionals in Africa, while both sides have agreed to expand their information exchanges and cooperation with regard to major diseases.
