AFD support in strengthening laboratories in Asean countries

In line with the commitment of French president, Emmanuel Macron, who said France will support developing countries in their fight against the COVID-19 with an “emergency budget worth €1,2 billion, the French Development Agency announced few days ago a €2 million grant for five countries in Southeast Asia through the ECOMORE II project implemented by the Pasteur Institute.

“It will enable the rapid mobilization of technical expertise and funding dedicated to healthcare systems that are going to be under severe pressure in coming weeks, and will also address the immediate economic and social consequences of the crisis,” said Rémy Rioux, AFD Chief Executive Officer.

The benificiaries of this support will be front line laboratories:

      • the Institut Pasteur du Cambodge, designated by the World Health Organization as the COVID 19 reference laboratory for the country as well as for the Southeast Asian region,
      • the Institute Pasteur of Laos,
      • the National Health Laboratory in Rangoun,
      • the National Institute for Hygiene and Epidemiology in Hanoi, the Institute Pasteur of Nha Trang and the Institute Pasteur of Ho Chi Minh for Vietnam
      • the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine in the Philippines

This funding aims to support those laboratories with reagents and supplies, human resources as well as procedures and tools to better control the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ECOMORE II project through its “one health approach” reinforce collaboration at national and regional level that contributes to implement proper public health interventions and effective surveillance systems.
