The People’s Liberation Army (PLA)’s first infectious disease prevention and control center in Africa will be delivered in early July, Wu Qian, spokesperson of the Ministry of National Defense, said Thursday, according to Globaltimes.cn.

The center for the study of tropical infectious diseases will be completed soon and delivered to the government of Sierra Leone, Wu said at a press conference on Thursday.

According to Wu, the center will mainly serve the purpose of improving local capabilities in preventing and treating large-scale infectious disease outbreak.

For decades, China has been providing aid to African countries, especially in the public health sector as the country’s peacekeeping missions include not only combating against terrorism but also improving local standard of living and poor medical standards, analysts said.
