Government wants tropical disease lab in Cape Verde 23 March 2012

The Minister of Higher Learning, Science and Innovation, António Correia e Silva, began a four-day visit to the Canary Islands yesterday in order to hold discussions with officials from the Spanish autonomous region regarding the installation in Cape Verde of a laboratory aimed at advanced studies on tropical diseases.

A scholarship program for advanced training and internships for Cape Verdean academics in the area is also seen as a necessary complement to the ministry’s program. Two Cape Verdean universities currently have research and teaching programs in the area of tropical diseases, something vital to the country’s health security.
