The Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh (DRASA) Health Trust is an NGO working to improve and advance healthcare in Nigeria, particularly in the area of infectious diseases. DRASA bridges the gap between funding and resources, implementing organizations and associations, and the areas of greatest need within Nigeria’s health sector.
Dr. Ameyo Stella Adadevoh was the doctor who correctly diagnosed and contained the first case of Ebola in Nigeria in 2014. Her heroic efforts prevented a major outbreak in Africa’s most populous country and saved countless lives. However, because the Nigerian health system was not prepared for an outbreak, she contracted Ebola and died. DRASA was created in her honour to reflect her passion, continue her legacy of providing high-quality healthcare in Nigeria, and ensure Nigeria and its healthcare workers are well-prepared for future outbreaks and public health threats.
