It is with great pleasure that we announce THE FIELD TEAM as the PRECISE – The Gambia Stars for the month of January 2022.

Though the contribution of every member in PRECISE – The Gambian team was key to the successful completion of recruitment of women of reproductive age, the field team was at the forefront of this achievement.

We also thank the Farafenni Health and Demography surveillance System (FHDSS) team who support us with the necessary demographic data of the study participants.
