Preparations for 2011 Surveys Underway
The aim of the cross-sectional study is to examine patterns of meningococcal carriage across all six countries.
At each of the MenAfriCar study locations across the African Meningitis belt, partner institutions have begun essential survey preparations. With the support of data management teams, field workers are presently carrying out a local population census and are reviewing their questionnaire completion and laboratory techniques.
The second cross-sectional survey is due to start after Ramadan.
