Training Program on Molecular Diagnosis and Pathogen Determination Techniques for Emerging and Reemerging Infection Diseases Successfully Concluded at CNGB
On November 19, 2018, the training program on molecular diagnosis and pathogen determination techniques for emerging and reemerging infection diseases by China CDC (CCDC ModPad) successfully completed at China National Genebank. The program was supported by the China National Health Commission and was hosted by China CDC. A total of 30 Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) public health professionals from African countries, including Ethiopia, Ghana, South Africa, Mozambique, Sierra Leone, Senegal, Zambia, Côte d'Ivoire, Cameroon, Uganda and Gabon, and 11 officers from Chinese provincial and municipal CDC passed the training and obtained the certificate issued by the Center for Global Public Health (CGPH) of China CDC. Dr. Jian Wang, Chairman of BGI Group, and Dr. Ning Li, Chief Development Officer of BGI Genomics, attended the ceremony and delivered a speech.
Mr. Xiaoping Dong, Director of CGPH, thanked for BGI’s support for this training program, he further added that talent cooperation is an important part of China-Africa cooperation. As an innovative program featuring gene sequencing technology, CCDC ModPad has an important impact on improving the technical level of public health in Africa and strengthening bilateral research cooperation. The training program in public health area will not only be carried out in China and African countries but also will be introduced to other Belt and Road countries.
Dr. Jian Wang expressed that BGI is honored to assist CCDC ModPad training program, and is willing to continue to support other training programs of the same type, BGI has strength and ability to contribute to China-Africa cooperation.
Mr. Joseph Humphrey Kofi Bonney from Ghana said that he hopes all the participants can bring back the knowledge and skills they have learned in training and can contribute to public health in their country.
The participants observed the experimental demonstration of Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplification technology and NGS sequencing technology in China National GeneBank laboratory and carried out hands-on operation under the guidance of experts from MGI, a subsidiary of BGI.
At the 2018 Beijing summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), President Xi Jinping announced eight major initiatives with African countries. Among the eight major initiatives, health care initiative covers medical and health aid programs for Africa, particularly flagship projects such as prevention and control of emerging and re-emerging communicable diseases. The talent training in public health is of great significance for improving the healthcare level in Africa and achieving leap-forward development. In order to offer more support to African public health and disease prevention and control system and capacity building, BGI will continue to explore the pragmatic cooperation with African countries and benefit more African people with its advanced capabilities of life sciences, biotechnology, and gene technology.
