During this meeting, the two officials reviewed the progress made in the projects led by the Ministry of Health and the CDC, mainly the training program for field epidemiologists, which aims to train over 300 Moroccan epidemiologists, as well as the extension program for the seasonal flu vaccination.

Redfield expressed his satisfaction with these projects and expressed his wish to continue this partnership.

Doukkali outlined the public health reform project in Morocco, notably the drafting of a public health law and the creation of a Moroccan Public Health Agency to oversee the state of public health in the Kingdom.

Following this meeting, Redfield voiced the CDC's readiness to assist the Ministry in carrying out the said reform and agreed to send a team of experts from CDC to conduct a mission in Morocco in order to identify how to support the Moroccan Public Health Agency.
