LMHRA, Catholic Hosp. Conduct Malaria Research

The Liberian partners of the IGORCADIA Project (Improved Governance and Research Capacities in Diagnostics for Infectious Diseases) of the Liberia Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Authority started a research about the Diagnostic Performance of Malaria (DiagLib) at the St. Joseph’s Catholic Hospital (SJCH).
The purpose of this study is to describe the performance of malaria diagnosis (microscopy and Rapid diagnostic tests) at the SJCH by applying laboratory-based approaches to sensitively detect the presence of Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) in clinical samples.
Other objectives of DiagLib include: to quantify the presence of Pfhrp2 and Pfhrp3 deletions; to assess molecular markers of antimalarial resistance in malaria isolates, to quantify the presence of other Plasmodium species and to establish a repository of samples and reference materials for future researches.
The qualitative component of the research will be developed by the LMHRA team during August and September 2019. It will be achieved through the conduct of semi-structured interviews and focus group discussions among participants of the Malaria research and pregnant women at their first antenatal visit to the SJCH, LMHRA stakeholders (National malaria Control Program, Ministry of Health, National Public Health Institute of Liberia), Community Advisory Boards, hemo biobanking and other health workers.
The purpose of the approach to the different participants is to understand the Liberian contextual barriers and the community perceptions on the storage of biological samples for biomedical research.
All IGORCADIA project activities are being conducted according to the international and national legal and ethical rules, ethic clearance and approvals from the University of Liberia (UL-PIRE), Ethics Review Board (ERB) in Monrovia, Liberia and from the CEIC ERB (Barcelona, Spain) have been obtained prior to starting any activity.
In addition, an ethics mentor is providing continuous inputs and pieces of advice about the local requirements and specific cultural issues.
The IGORCADIA team has been highly committed to promoting equal opportunities in science and research from a gender perspective among participating institutions, contributing to improve the quality of life, the health of women and girls and the participation of women in all the activities developed within the Project. No selection process to become a member of the research team has presented any type of barrier or limitation from a gender perspective. Moreover, a monitoring system has been developed to make sure equal opportunities among the research team and participants.

    I want to express some appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from such a problem. Because of researching throughout the world wide web and seeing suggestions which are not pleasant, I was thinking my life was well over. Being alive devoid of the strategies to the problems you have resolved by way of your guideline is a critical case, and the kind that could have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not discovered your website. Your own personal training and kindness in playing with every item was useful. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t encountered such a solution like this. I’m able to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for the skilled and result oriented help. I won’t be reluctant to refer your web sites to anybody who should receive guidelines about this topic.
