Investing not only in primary healthcare systems and general medical expertise, but also in research capacities, is crucial for Africa to be able solve its challenges in health, according to Bill Gates, Co-Chair of the Gates Foundation.
In an interview with Capital, Gates underlined the importance of building the capacities of Africa’s scientists as well as public private partnerships in the health sector.
“It is important that we build up, not only primary healthcare systems and the general medical expertise but also these research capabilities because whether inventing drugs or carrying out the trials, that determines the pace which we can take things forward, with malaria eradication and or measles eradication and really engage the scientists there,” Gates said.
The Gates Foundation currently runs different programs that contribute to building capabilities in research such as establishing the Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance Network (CHAMPS), building laboratories as well as working with African scientists to track everything that is going on in health and understanding childhood deaths.
“With the drug trials that we do, there are some that are done in Africa where there is a lot of capacity built as those investments are made and then a lot of studies are there, in some cases working directly with African Universities; this is particularly true for TB and HIV,” he further said.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation works worldwide to tackle critical problems such as helping the poor lift themselves out of poverty and harness advances in science and technology to save lives. The Foundation runs projects in Ethiopia in the sectors of health; especially family planning as well as education and projects in the agricultural sectorg
