We are very happy to report that our study is making great progress!
As mentioned in our last update, the GAIA Vaccine Foundation did a pilot study in Sikoro, Mali West Africa. 50 interviews were completed. We recently completed the creation of a database and did data entry and analysis for this pilot. The full KAP/WTP study was entirely completed in May-June 2011 and 100% of the subjects were enrolled. The database for the full study (300 subjects) is built and is currently being reviewed by one of our consultant. Data entry will start next month!
As for the prevalence study, the remaining medical and lab supplies were brought to Mali in September 2011.The founder and scientific director of GAIA VF was recently in Mali to review progress. 80 patients have been enrolled to date and lab work is ongoing. There is a lot to do and we will probably be able to gather data by the end of March 2012.
