IAEA Will Help Paraguay Use Nuclear Energy in Health Care

ASUNCION – The International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA, will assist Paraguay in using nuclear energy for health care, IAEA director general Yukiya Amano said after meeting with Paraguayan Foreign Minister Eladio Loizaga on Monday.

“The purpose of my visit is to meet with political authorities and visit hospitals and health centers, where the assistance will be provided,” Amano said in a press conference after meeting with Loizaga at the start of his three-day visit to Asuncion.

Loizaga said the IAEA director general’s visit would “increase cooperation” between Paraguay and the agency.

The IAEA will provide Paraguay with resources, advice and training for technicians in the use of all instruments and the latest technology in the nuclear energy field, focusing on health research and care.

Amano is scheduled to meet with Public Health and Welfare Minister Antonio Barrios and the Radiology and Nuclear Regulatory Agency’s board, and to give a lecture at the National University.

This is the first time an IAEA director general has visited Paraguay, which joined the agency’s board of directors last year.

The IAEA, the top international nuclear energy agency, plays a key role in the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons through its verification of commitments by member states regarding the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
