The current Minister of Health and Population, Mr Gilbert MOKOKI on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, appointed Dr Auréole Liptia NDOUNDOU to the position of Director of Health Information, Evaluation and Research.
Dr NDOUNDOU who since 2016, held the position of “Documentation advisor” at the Minister of Health and Population, is the supervisor of CANTAM and Africlinique activities at the Ministry of Health and Population (MSP).
Dr NDOUNDOU, who coordinates among others, the “Octobre Rose” campaign in the fight against cancer, is not new in the domain of health. She discovered this domain out of her country, the Congo. From April 2014 to June 2016, she was Laboratory Assistant for Public Health at the Cheick Anta Diop University (UCAD) in Dakar, Senegal before ascending to the functions of Officer of Public Health on “MIH-Santé” and “Projet RIU” at the Public Health Centre in Valencia – Spain, and the Representative of the Public Health Programmes for Students at the Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) in London – England.
She holds a PhD in Pharmacy from UCAD, and is a Public and Community Health Specialist from the University of the GCU. Dr. NDOUNDOU is a polyglot with fluency in English, Spanish, Kikongo and Lingala.
However, we are aware of the fact that many challenges await her as she heads the Directorate of Health Information, Evaluation and Research. We want to assure her of our support as a team in this network, of which she is part.
