Stats SL is all set to collaborate with the John Hopkins University, which is a private research university in Baltimore, Maryland in the united States, to conduct an Ebola survivors study.

Whilst on a visit to the stats SL headquarters on AJ momoh Street in Freetown on Tuesday 7th January 2020, Associate Professor Philip Anglewicz from John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public health said that the visit is aimed at finding a common ground of collaboration with Stats SL on the planned study. He indicated that being that that the epidemic ended five years ago, the research is important so that the social features of Ebola, which has attracted very little research, can be established. He furthered that the research will focus on the long term impact of Ebola on people’s health and demographic outcomes. He mentioned that his institution believes that Ebola can have more than just physical health impact and said that it can further impact mental health, influence migration patterns and even impact marriage and child bearing.
