Fadima Haidara PortraitFadima Haidara, MD, has been working at the Center for Vaccine Development (CVD)-Mali since 2002, and is the head of the clinical department.

Haidara works on vaccine trial phases that primarily assess the safety and immunogenicity of vaccines such as the meningitis A conjugate vaccine, RotaTeq vaccine, and an anti-Ebola vaccine. Studies implemented at CVD-Mali led to the licensure of the MenAfriVac vaccine in Mali. MenAfriVac is now used in the routine vaccination program. The study with RotaTeq vaccine also led to its introduction in Mali and has helped to reduce this disease in infants.
