World Health Organization (WHO) representative in Algiers, Bah Keita, praised Algeria’s experience in getting under control the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), tuberculosis and malaria, and its willingness to help neighbouring countries to combat such diseases.

Keita made the statement at a meeting of the Regional Commission for Certification of Polio Eradication in Africa, being held in Algiers (July 17-1).

The challenges facing Africa require “comprehensive strategies” to get contagious diseases under control and prevent chronic illnesses, he underlined.

The WHO official greeted the “positive results” achieved by Algeria in the field after the adoption of a “strong health system.”

Mentioning the health systems of African countries, he said their success is contingent on many important factors, including skilled human resources, the quality of health facilities and the availability of medicine and vaccines.
