Message from the President, DR. ERICK V. A. GBODOSSOU

In a hundred years, man has gone from empirical knowledge to conquer space. The technique went fast, too fast and psychological man did not follow. After difficult to understand these so-called “technical progress” that man control also less, it appeared new data that are likely to divert the most logical reasoning, because they cannot fit into any classic conceptual approach.

The Man of the XXI century does not know where he is. The values that justify its existence have collapsed, leaving the unknown on the promontory.

Around the world, science in general and health in particular, are notorious discomfort with questionable behavior and attitudes concern.
