Israel’s Impact and Growing Ties in Africa

University of Jerusalem came up with research studies on how to curb Malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. Many Israeli start-ups have developed medical technology that has been of great help to nurses and doctors in the most rural of clinics and hospitals across the continent and Israel is training doctors and nurses in Ghana in advanced, low-cost methods to address the country’s high infant mortality rate. Israel has been instrumental in the drive to provide voluntary circumcision to African men as a proven method to reduce the risk of contracting HIV.
