MCD Inc.

With eighteen microscopes lined around a room, each of the lab technicians attending this malaria diagnostic refresher training is strengthening his or her knowledge and technical skills in diagnosing malaria, which is an essential step in securing proper treatment, preventing drug resistance, and tracking the disease's prevalence within the country. Guinea, whose health system was overrun by the 2014-2016 Ebola crisis, is engaged in an effort to rebuild its diagnostic capabilities against malaria with the support of MCDI.


Esther Eburi, an Equatoguinean national, is the Initiative's Vaccine Project Officer. We spoke with Eburi about her experiences working in her home country with Equatorial Guinea's first ever clinical trial and her vision towards both her and her country's future.
