Funded by the European Union
Between the 12th and 14th January 2016, implementers from EU CBRN Centres of Excellence Project 46 visited Vientiane, to carry out an initial fact-finding mission
In Vientiane, project experts met with the Lao PDR CBRN National Team and a number of laboratories and key agencies, such as the Mittaphab (Friendship) Hospital, the Lao Red Cross, the Mahosot Hospital, the Fire Prevention and Fighting Department, and the Biotechnology and Ecology Institute.
The mission, which was coordinated by the CBRN National Focal Point for Lao PDR, Mr. Phouthanouthong Xaysombath, was very successful, enabling the project team to agree on a number of priority areas on which the project’s three components will focus as the project is implemented in the country.
