GSD WITH SEA BOX, BAYLOR COLLEGE OF MEDICINE, & THE FIGHT AGAINST EBOLA
A joint team from Sea Box Inc., Baylor College of Medicine, and The University of Liberia have just completed the installation of a Rapid Response Containerized Medical System (RR-CMS) in West Africa.
The RR-CMS was designed and commissioned by Baylor College of Medicine and funded through a grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. The foundation, established by late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, pledged $100 million to prevent the spread of Ebola following the 2014 West Africa outbreak. In a bid to address the significant gaps exposed during the epidemic, Baylor Global Health at Baylor College of Medicine secured $1.5 Million to improve emergency infrastructure and logistics. Sea Box Inc was retained to assist in the development, manufacture, and deployment of this specially designed containerized medical unit. The multi-container system includes a pharmacy, a laboratory, and a glove box (3 expandable bicon containers and 1 dry freight container).
The RR-CMS is now located in the city of Monrovia at the University of Liberia’s campus. An inaugural ceremony was held on January 25th and was attended by members of the university, Baylor Global Health, and Sea Box Inc. University of Liberia President and Neuroscientist, Dr. Ophelia Weeks expressed joy and excitement for the future. She believes that this state-of-the-art mobile medical unit will continue to encourage home grown research and assist the university in achieving its vision for growth within the fields of science and healthcare.
