Dr. Aminata Touré joins the Advisory Board

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.

Involved in numerous activities to strengthen democracy in Africa, Aminata Touré has also served as Minister of Justice, Keeper of the Seals from 2012 to 2013 and Special Envoy for Internal and External Affairs of President Macky Sall.

Sensitive to the issue of good human capital management, Ms. Touré has held various positions within the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), as Senior Technical Adviser to the Government of Burkina Faso, Regional Technical Adviser based in Ivory Coast, Senior Adviser at headquarters in New York, then Director of the Human Rights, Gender and Culture Department.
