Dr. Alice Street and a team of Co-investigators conducted the DiaDev study at the 34 Military Hospital in 2018 and 2019, as part of several sites chosen in Sierra Leone to understand diagnostic devices (especially RDTs) in shaping healthcare provider-patient interactions. Findings from the preliminary analysis of the data were shared with the 34 Military Hospital staff by one of the Co-investigators, Dr. Mohamed Boie Jalloh, on the 3rd of February 2021.

In attendance were doctors/clinicians, head nurses of the various hospital departments, laboratory staff, ward maids and in-charges, and representatives from the University of Sierra Leone and the National Safe Blood Services. Presentations provided the audience with an overview of the DiaDev project globally, the study's findings at the 34 Military Hospital, and the impact of the findings on driving reform in clinical and laboratory structure and practice within the 34 Military Hospital.
