Vice Minister of the Ministry of Public Health of Ecuador and Ambassador of Ecuador Visit IVI
On November 4, 2013, IVI was pleased to welcome the Honorable Vice Minister of the Ministry of Public Health of Ecuador Dr. Hugo Miguel Malo Serrano and the Honorable Ambassador of Ecuador Nicolas Trujillo Newlin for the first time to the IVI headquarters. Ecuador is among the 35 state parties signed on to our Establishment Agreement. During the delegation’s visit, they learned more about our vaccine work in Cholera, Typhoid and Dengue, and our capacity-building program in North Korea. The Vice Minister also toured the lab facilities and met with IVI scientists. We look forward to welcoming them again in the future and to expanding our partnership with Ecuador.
