Integrum Scientific is not your average clinical research support provider. Our experts are on the front lines in the fight to prepare for and respond to the most dangerous outbreaks in the most vulnerable regions of the world. BBC Breakfast talks with our Infectious Disease Scientific Advisory Board (IDSAB) Member, Dr. Calum Semple, on the WHO decision not to declare a Public Health Emergency of International Concern with the current Ebola outbreak in the DRC and Uganda. Dr. Semple defends the decision, highlighting the security instability in the DRC compared to the preparation and readiness status in Uganda. Another Integrum IDSAB member, Dr. Julius Lutwama of the Uganda Virus Research Institute, is a key figure in the strength of Uganda’s readiness and response.
