KPL) The United States continues to share knowledge and collaborate with young Lao scientists on important health challenges.

On Jul 1, officials from the U.S. Embassy, Ministry of Health, and the National University of Laos welcomed a group of 33 scientists from Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand, and Vietnam to celebrate the launch of the Lower Mekong Initiative Young Scientists Programme.

Hosted by the National University of Laos’ (NUOL) Faculty of Engineering, the event commemorated the second-annual field mission of the Lower Mekong Initiative Young Scientists programme, a regional STEM development initiative funded by the United States and implemented by Arizona State University.

The programme aims to foster and promote scientific collaboration within the Lower Mekong Delta region, and to promote knowledge sharing on science and technology best practices and research ideas.
