China’s Shandong University takes research project on Chikungunya
China’s Shandong University has taken a comprehensive research project to find out a complete public health combat and recourse mechanism to prevent, manage and eliminate the breakout of epidemic such as Chikungunya in Bangladesh, reports UNB.
Dr Syeda Zerin Imam, the lead researcher with the project, arrived here last week in this regard.
The Shandong University is one of the top most research universities of the world.
In recent times, the severe outbreak of ‘Chikungunya’ has affected a considerable amount of resources in the country which can be deemed as fatal for the resource constrained population of countries like Bangladesh, said a press release.
To reduce the losses and protect the mass population from such an epidemic disease, Dr Zerin has taken an accelerated research programme to find out a comprehensive recourse for the prevention of such an outbreak in the future.
The aim of the first phase of this research is to identify the demographic factor as well as the risk factor of this epidemic disease and establish a preventive and proactive infrastructure to protect Bangladesh resources from this devastating situation.
Dr Zerin urged all to send her all available information regarding observations on the risk factors, demographic data, all possible reasons, management and effective medication and useful suggestions through email – firstname.lastname@example.org
She said any individual case study will also be most gratefully welcome. For the research purpose, Dr Zerin will be there in Bangladesh till the end of August next.
Dr Zerin is a public health professional with more than seven years experience in advanced dentistry and management of public health resources.
With a basic degree in dentistry, Dr Zerin completed her Master's from North South University in Public Health and later, worked with the Bangabandhu Medical University and BIRDEM as a postgraduate researcher.
