A Republic of Congo delegation of health and higher education representatives recently met with Howard University officials, aiming to ultimately advance research into sickle cell disease (SCD) — a particularly pervasive disorder in Africa.
Led by Congo Minister of Health and Population Jacqueline Lydia Mikolo and Minister of Higher Education Bruno Jean Richard Itoua, the group met with Anthony Wutoh, Howard University’s provost and chief academic officer, and James Taylor, MD, director of the university’s Center for Sickle Cell Disease.
“This visit is another step for a project that has already been initiated for both countries,” Mikolo said in a press release. “We hope that now we are going to take practical steps. For us, it will really make a difference.”
