Our study - evaluation of the prevalence of HPV subtypes associated with cervical cancer - is still ongoing. To date 100% of patients have been enrolled and interviewed and the recruitment of subjects is now closed.
Dr. Ibrahima Téguété, our Malian collaborator on this study, was the recipient a travel grant enabling him to attend the International Papillomavirus Conference in Puerto Rico this month and present a poster with preliminary results.
As you all know Mali is still facing a major political crisis. We believe that continuing to operate our programs will instill hope in the citizens of Mali to sustain them through these difficult times. Our Malian collaborators are continuing their work, and we need to bolster their optimism that peace and prosperity will be restored. More than ever, GAIA VF, our staff, and our patients need our, and your, support.
