Niger

17.6078, 8.0817

The Mérieux Foundation began working in Niger in 2012, and the country joined the West African Network of Biomedical Analysis Laboratories (RESAOLAB) the following year. In addition to assessing laboratory capacity, filling gaps in laboratory training and equipment, and assuring laboratory quality in Niger, the Mérieux Foundation has constructed the Health Laboratories Directorate and the External Quality Assessment Unit in Niamey, and a training center at the Zinder Mother-Child Health Center.

As one of the G5 Sahel countries, Niger is also part of the project supported by the German Federal Enterprise for International Cooperation to create a biosecurity network for the diagnosis of highly pathogenic agents through the deployment of mobile health laboratories and the creation of a rapid intervention team trained on its use.
