Chemistry in developing countriesIdea by Fastino Madzima | added on Mar 24, 2010 10:54AM Discussion
most developing countries, especially most African countries, they do not have proper scientific and technical support to develop their education and in-turn scientific environment properly: they lack some of the most important training tools such as training instruments and information exchange etc, how can we help them?
Most of these mentioned soceities, they don't have proper labs, instruments, experienced personnel etc. Can we assess its impact to that society or an unverse at large? what else can we say about such societies? how can we help it? Is there any considerations that might be needed?
In my view, there must an organ from organisations such as IUPAC, UNICEF, etc which must have local representative at the same time they must be members to such bodies as IUPAC. This organ must firstly establish for instance in teriatry education, a central center where students can access scientific information, fully equiped laboratories etc, freely for the individuals or as institutes (colledge Class) even whole society . if such an organ is there, is there any way in which we can help it to effectively execute its obligations?
