From 10 to 14 December 2018, Linda Oskam was at Noguchi Memorial Institute of Medical Research (NMIMR) in Accra, Ghana on behalf of KIT (Royal Tropical Institute). From 2015 until the end of 2017 NMIMR and DATOS/KIT supported the establishment of a serology and molecular biology laboratory at Njala University in Central Sierra Leone in the aftermath of the Ebola crisis. This is part of a bigger Post-Ebola resilience project that was supported by the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Accra, Ghana.

During the final meeting, the laboratory staff presented the outcomes of their work and performed some tests that they are currently not able to do in their own laboratory. In addition, the management and activities for sustainability were discussed with the management of the laboratory.
