In 2014, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), partnered with several organizations including eHealth Africa (eHA) to enroll and vaccinate over 8,000 healthcare and front-line workers against the Ebola Virus disease via the Sierra Leone Trial to Introduce a Vaccine against Ebola (STRIVE) program.
On May 18, 2018, The Journal of Infectious Diseases published a supplement on the STRIVE program. A few members of eHA staff (including Dayo Spencer-Walters, Deputy Director, Programs & Impact, Sierra Leone) co-authored two articles from the supplement to share their learnings from the programs. The two articles are:
- Lessons Learned in Clinical Trial Communication During an Ebola Outbreak:The Implementation of STRIVE
- Implementing a Multisite Clinical Trial in the Midst of an Ebola Outbreak: Lessons Learned From the Sierra Leone Trial to Introduce a Vaccine Against Ebola
eHA is proud to have been a part of the success of the STRIVE program. Click here to read all of the articles included in the supplement.
