About the sponsor

Bureau de Madagascar, Fondation Mérieux

Established in 1967, the Mérieux Foundation is an independent family foundation, chaired by Alain Mérieux and recognised to be of public interest. Its mission is to contribute to global health by strengthening the local capacities of developing countries, and to reduce the impact of infectious diseases that affect vulnerable populations, especially mothers and children. Having been active in Madagascar since 2006, the Mérieux Foundation contributes to improving access to care for vulnerable people and to improved biological diagnosis by supporting regional laboratories. This is carried out in close collaboration with the Ministry of Public Health, through the laboratory development department and the Charles Mérieux Infectiology Centre, hosted by the University of Antananarivo. It participates in training health professionals in the field of research and clinical trials. The Foundation also supports local associations fighting poverty in the country, such as Father Pedro Opeka’s Akamasoa (“Good Friends”) Association.
