U.S. Army Medical Research Unit – Kenya: Improving malaria diagnosis, one lab at a time

By U.S. Army Africa Public Affairs

OYUGIS, Kenya – Inside Rachuonyo district hospital, Simba Mobagi peers through his laboratory’s only microscope at a sick woman’s blood sample.

The 33-year-old laboratory technologist’s goal – rapidly identifying malaria parasites.
Dozens more samples await his eyes. Each represents a patient suffering outside on wooden benches.

Mogabi takes little time to ponder his workload. He quickly finds malaria parasites, marks his finding on a pink patient record and moves to the next slide. Much to his surprise, a U.S. Army officer arrives, removes his black beret and sets down a large box.

Inside Maj. Eric Wagar’s box is a new microscope – a small gesture within U.S. Army Medical Research Unit-Kenya’s larger efforts to improve malaria diagnostics in Africa.

For more than 40 years, USAMRU-K – known locally as the Walter Reed Project – has studied diseases in East Africa through a partnership with the Kenya Medical Research Institute.

Wagar heads USAMRU-K’s Malaria Diagnostics and Control Center of Excellence in Kisumu, a unique establishment begun in 2004 that’s since trained more than 650 laboratory specialist to better their malaria microscopy skills.

“Working with the Walter Reed Project is so good for the community, as it benefits the patient,” Mobagi said, who is looking forward to attending the center’s malaria diagnostics course. “Plus, having a new microscope improves our work environment. Work will be easier and we will have better outcomes.”

Back in Kisumu, wall maps mark the center’s success, with hundreds of trained lab technicians from more than a dozen countries across the African continent. International students have come from Ireland, the U.S. and Thailand.
Many students are sponsored through U.S. government aid programs aimed at reducing disease in Africa or by nongovernmental organizations. Most of the center’s $450,000 annual budget comes from the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative. Other funding is from the U.S. Defense Department, NGOs and pharmaceutical companies.

For students to practice malaria identification, five Kenyan lab workers work tirelessly to create a variety of blood specimens. Slides may show one or more of malaria’s several species – others are free of parasites. The majority of malaria cases are the falciparum species, but many people are co-infected with other species and it’s important for students to recognize that, Wagar said.

A recent review of the course’s effectiveness showed that microscopy students went back to labs lacking organization and equipment. In some cases, the training was not having the desired impact on local people facing malaria.

“At our course, lab students learn skills and habits that increase their ability to accurately detect malaria on blood slides. Yet, when they return to their local laboratories, they face the challenge of changing habits and procedures,” Wagar said. “Changing behavior is hard to do.”

In late- April, Wagar accompanied Jew Ochola, 28, the center’s daily operations manager to Oyugis, the district center of Rachuonyo that lies roughly 30 miles south of Kisumu in Kenya’s Nyanza province.

The visit marked the initial visit of the center’s supervision support project – monthly visits to six local district hospitals – to implement tools that increase efficient oversight of malaria diagnosis. The yearlong $300,000 initiative – funded by the President’s Malaria Initiative, a USAID sponsored program – is designed to help translate school learning into field practices, Ochola said.

“First I do an assessment of the hospital’s lab, what procedures they have, the number of people on staff and the equipment they use,” Ochola said. “By partnering with laboratory managers, we hope to increase standards and improve efficient and effective diagnosis.
The goal is to lessen the burden of malaria on the local people.”

To mark progress, lab staff must collect 20 slides each month that show properly handled blood samples. Monthly visits will mark performance improvement.
Through quality malaria diagnosis, USAMRU-K is part of a larger public health effort to reduce malaria’s impacts Kenyan’s lives. Illness means paying for treatment and less wages earned, creating an impact on the economy.

“By mitigating a public health burden, people should have more time to grow food and have money for things other than medical care,” Wagar said. “We can’t expect to see change right away, but hopefully things will be a little bit better every month.”

Working with the Djibouti-based Combined Joint Task Force Horn of Africa and other DoD agencies, the center recently offered microscopy courses through U.S. military partnership events in Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania. The effort supports U.S. Africa Command’s strategic engagement goal of increasing capabilities and strengthening capacity with the militaries of African nation

Graeme Obree is a genius. This is not about how wondeful a book this is, it's about how heroic a guy this is. Graeme Obree is a genius, pure and simple. He should be a national hero in Scotland and in the UK, but sadly is more likely top be the subject of ridicule. This is a scandal and is deeply abhorrent to me. This guy is living proof (thank goodness he is still living, as I'll explain later) that the little fellow can reach up and gve the big fellow a bloody nose and take the spoils. He is better respected in France and Italy, indeed how stunning is it to have a foreword by Francesco Moser, than he is in his home nation. This guy took away Moser's world hour record, as an enthusiastic amateur, in a sport ruled by huge professional teams and a blazer brigade that would make the Orange Order proud. He did it against stupifying odds. In no particluar order: he had scarcely any cash backing, he had no serious coach or medical team advising him, he had sub standard equipment, he was a family man with children to support and no real income, he was also a sufferer of depression, with a failed suicide attempt, perhaps as a result of cruel bullying which he was subjected to as a child. He was a talented racer and time triallist in Scotland and was capable of giving Chris Boardman a run for his money. I even raced against him in a mountain bike race, where he raced with a Muddy Fox Courier, and rode it much as he does the 'Old Faithful' machine above. Didn't see him for dust. His amateur carrer had slumped, before he hatched a plan to build a new bike to suit this position. It was welded and hewn in his workshop and his idea to reduce q-factor (essentially the distance between the cranks) was solved by using a bearing he found in a washing machine. Outrageously, he became better known for riding a bike made of washing machine parts, rathet han a revolutionary, who studied the rules on bike position and came up with a legal and radical alternative. To me, he was no less a revolutionary genius than Dick Fosbry. Was he lauged at? Maybe at first, but not once he won titles. Why then, was Obree laughed at and criticised, when all he was doign was looking into the rules and trying to design the best vehicle he could for the job in hand? Surely that is what Ferrari do in formula 1, Ducati do in Moto GP? Why have a go at him? Was it because he was a maverick and unsuitable for the heads of the UCI at the time (who banned his position as soon as they could). Sure his bike was an advantage and maybe Boardman could have exceeded his hour record on a similar machine, but a) not by much if at all and b) Obree designed it, built it and rode it. Graeme Obree is a genius. Pure and simple.

If you are still awake, please, please read this book. Second best, is a feature film of the same name. It is not historically accurate and has been 'Disneyed' up a bit, but if you can suspend a little belief, it's well worth going to see.

As for his depression? He has now had I believe, 3 suicide attempts, but thankfully is still with us. He still rides like the wind and is still waiting for even a semblance of national recognition as the genius he is, and not for being a maverick with a washing machine as a bike. That he is not worshipped as a hero is a national scandal.

Oh go on, read the book!
