Key elements of the collaboration include sending Namibian students and specialist medical teams interested in oncology epidemiology to Mainz in Germany, where the Rhineland-Pfalz Registry is housed. A further exchange will see German epidemiologists travelling to Namibia to build capacity within the local registry.
The state minister of social affairs, labour and health, Sabine Batzing-Lichtenthaler, commended the collaboration and exchange program, saying that the exchange of knowledge and building of capacity between countries is important to help save lives.

A full report on the visit will soon be presented to the Namibia’s health minister.
