Meeting between Ambassador Fadera and team with Dr. Jarrad Marles, Regional Science Manager at the Defense Threat Reduction Agency at the Embassy of The Gambia in Washington DC.

A Gambian named Dr. Bonto Faburay who lives in Texas and is currently associated with the above Agency on a project being implemented in Senegal contacted the Embassy on the work of this important Agency. Upon review of the information, the Embassy quickly invited Dr. Jarrad Marles to the Embassy to discuss how The Gambia could also benefit from the project. Basically the agency collaborates with partner countries and the international community to minimize the threat of deliberate, accidental and natural infectious disease outbreaks through enhanced biosecurity, biosafety and bio-surveillance measures. The discussions which are ongoing are positive and we look forward to a fruitful partnership with the agency.
