Abdelaziz Bouteflika, President of Algeria, addressed the International Congress of Allergology and Clinical Immunology last June in Algiers, Algeria.
Dr Bouteflika confirmed that "Algeria will, as in the past, continue to support this work to fight against respiratory diseases which represents a health priority for the whole of the African Continent."
He added that "in the fight against all diseases in general and against allergic and chronic respiratory diseases in particular, we call upon the rulers, the health professionals and society as a whole. We are striving to find the best solutions to the given problems. We are working with open minds and in close collaboration with health services, health professionals and patient associations, and we are considering the human and material resources available on a long term basis in each country.
He called attention to the fact that "we have to first of all rely on our own efforts and means and join the international partnership with a perspective of developing national human resources."
