2011 Chad Survey Underway
After months of preparation at CSSI, the MenAfriCar team have begun the 2011 rainy season cross sectional study in Chad.
The study was officially launched by the Ministry of Public Health in Mandélia on July 5 2011.
Researchers will investigate the prevalence of meningococcal carriage in 5,000 individuals both before and after the 2011 MenAfriVac™ vaccination campaign. It is also hoped that the results of these surveys in Chad can be used to demonstrate the effect of the MenAfriVac™ vaccine on meningococcal carriage.
