(audio-EN) A better data collection could reduce diseases spreading
Montreal (QUEBEC) – One of the important lessons that emerged from Dr. Mike Poole’s lecture, here, at the NÉOMED Institute last Friday, which he summarized in this interview, is the need for a better data collection in developing countries. Dr. Mike Poole, director, Global Health Office of the President, at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, underscores the difficulties to stop a disease when you don’t exactly know where it has spread and in which proportion.
