Dikembe Mutombo Foundation to Partner with Fulbright Academy on 2016 Global Health Summit in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo
Date:5/2/2013

Roswell, Georgia (PRWEB) May 02, 2013

The Board of Directors of the Fulbright Academy announced today it will partner with the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation (DMF) on its 2016 Global Health Summit in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The organizations will work together to contribute to malaria prevention efforts in the Congo. The DRC has one of the highest mortality rates for children under the age of five; many of those deaths are attributed to malaria.

At the upcoming Fulbright Academy Global Health Summit in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Mr. Mutombo will be the keynote speaker on the final day of the conference (May 24-26). His keynote address will be on the topic: Global Health Challenges in the DRC – A Unique Perspective with Concrete Solutions.

Mr. Mutombo, Chairman and President of the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation, has donated over $23M of his own funds as part of the establishment of the $29M Biamba Marie Mutombo hospital. Chairman Mutombo is internationally recognized for his efforts to improve health, education and the quality of life for the people in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). A significant portion of the Foundation’s efforts are focused on healthcare, including building one of the newest general hospitals in the capital city of Kinshasa, DRC. The Biamba Marie Mutombo hospital opened its doors in December 2007 and provides much-needed health-care in an area still lacking. Born in Kinshasa, Mutombo arrived in the USA in 1987 on an academic scholarship and graduated from Georgetown University with dual degrees in Linguistics and Diplomacy. He was recruited to play basketball and played professionally for 18 years
