Dr. Aminata Touré joins the Advisory Board of the Brazzaville Foundation. Former Prime Minister of Senegal from 2013 to 2014, she was recently President of the Economic, Social and Environmental Council of Senegal.
She provides expertise and solid support to the Foundation's programmes and actions, especially by supporting the Lomé Initiative, which aims to curb the trafficking of fake medicines.
In January 2020, when she participated at the Lomé Summit, she declared: "This is an endogenous initiative that calls for the modification of the legislative frameworks of the countries themselves and the strengthening of their cooperation". Thus, she shares the Foundation's method of putting Africans at the heart of actions that concern them.
