During his November 7, 2016, visit to Nigeria, Minister Dion announced that Canada is providing $395,000 to the Lagos State Ministry of Health to help in the design of a new biological laboratory and secure repository (biobank) of infectious diseases, such as Ebola virus disease and Lassa fever. The objective is to ensure fail-safe readiness for any subsequent breakouts of such diseases.
