The purpose of the visit, which was part of a ‘grand tour’ of the French healthcare infrastructure, was to facilitate bilateral cooperation in research and education in the healthcare domain. As a representative of the IHU model in France, the IHU Strasbourg showcased its activities and facilities dedicated to research, education, and patient care.

The fruitful discussions bode well for mutual support between the IHU and its Central-Asian colleagues, and we look forward to further collaboration.
