Argentina to Advance the Study of Tropical Diseases

BUENOS AIRES – The University of Buenos Aires (UBA) on Wednesday signed a research cooperation agreement with the Mundo Sano (Healthy World) Foundation, an organization dedicated to the fight against tropical diseases.

The agreement aims to strengthen cooperation between UBA and the foundation to help carry out joint studies, hold conferences and seminars, as well as pursue other educational activities in that area.

Mundo Sano is part of the Insud Group, Argentina’s foremost pharmaceutical corporation, which is currently working on eradicating illneses such as Chagas disease, dengue fever, Zika and Chikungunya.

Silvia Gold, the president of the foundation, said that achieving this goal requires a joint effort with the university, as field work only becomes evidence “when published in a renowned journal.”

To illustrate, Gold cited the data and fieldwork gathered over the years by the foundation she helms, but interpretations of those results must be published by science faculties.

UBA president Alberto Barbieri said that the agreement is “flexible,” meaning that it will allow both parties to explore various forms of cooperation as future projects come along.
