The joint effort of the freeBILy team in Madagascar has led to the finalization of the recruitment as of 5 February 2020. A total of 5203 women accepted to be part of the study. Women were recruited thanks to our great field team consisting of our 25 nurses and midwives, 4 doctors, 4 data managers, 5 lab technicians, 6 international doctoral students and 4 drivers! Their integration within the community, the trust they gained among the women, the harmony within the team and the passion of all those involved, brought lot of attention to the trial in the country.
In the last weeks the recruitment numbers increased notably because within the communities the message was circulating about the approaching closure of recruitment. The road is still long, but right now we feel stronger to reach the end! All together to win the fight against schistosomiasis.
