Â¶1. Pursuant to REFTEL, on April 16, Econoff met with
the Secretary General of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Momo Camara,
regarding the status of Guinea's implementation of the World Health
Organization's International Health Regulations (IHR).
Â¶2. Econoff inquired about the status of implementation and offered
to provide the Secretary General with a copy of the U.S. IHR
implementation plan. However, Dr. Camara refused saying that he
does not speak nor read English. He requested that we have the plan

Guinea supports the efforts of the WHO to control the international
spread of disease. No other substantive response was received.
