Sierra Leone Trial to Introduce a Vaccine against Ebola

The College of Medicine and Allied Health Sciences (COMAHS), University of Sierra Leone, the Sierra Leone Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MoHS), and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are working together on an Ebola vaccine clinical trial in Sierra Leone, which launched in April 2015.

This study, called the Sierra Leone Trial to Introduce a Vaccine against Ebola (STRIVE), is designed to assess the safety and efficacy of a candidate Ebola vaccine rVSV-ZEBOV among health and other frontline workers.
