The 2017 YALI/Mandela Washington Fellowship 2017 enabled Mr. Moïse Akebim, in Public Management at the University of Minnesota, to establish a partnership with Books for Africa, an organization that donated books to African countries since 1988. The beginning of the partnership is materialized by a gift of five (05) tablets with medical program for the benefit of 4 doctors and an association of community development.  The official handover was made this Tuesday, August 29, 2017 in the conference room of the Embassy of the USA in Togo, in the presence of Ryan Ballow, acting Deputy Chief of Mission. The beneficiaries are Dr. Bagassam SAMA, Dr. Sonia TCHAPTCHET, Dr. Constant DJIWA, and medical student Estelle TCHASSE. This gift is intended to accompany the latter and facilitate the administration of primary health care. The monitoring and evaluation of the use of these tablets will eventually help others to benefit from other tablets thus extending its use to a larger number of health practitioners in Togo.
