Information about the partner

The Fondation Congolaise pour la Recherche Médicale (FCRM) was created as a legal entity in 2008 to address the issue of the limited number of Congolese scientists conducting health research activities in the Republic of Congo. FCRM is an independent non-govermental institution. The foundation has a collaboration agreement with both the Congolese Ministry of Public Health and Minsitry of Science and Technology, as well as the University Marien Ngouabi (the only Public University in the Republic of Congo).

The FCRM serves to strengthen collaborations between academic, research and health institutions in Congo and advocates for public and private sector support to health research in the country. Therefore, partnership agreements have been signed with the Ministry of Public Health, the Ministry of Science and Technology and the University Marien Ngouabi which is the only public university in the Country.
