In 2014/2015 Professor Chirinos worked with a group of well-known West African artists to create a music campaign to raise awareness about the Ebola Virus Disease in West Africa. The song Africa Stop Ebola was released in November 2014 by Universal France and distributed to radio and TV stations (video clip) across west Africa, carrying simple messages to influence listeners about what to do to stop the disease. The campaign was covered by major broadcasters and newspapers including The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN International and NPR.
The charity single was released on iTunes in Europe, with profits donated to Médecins sans Frontières (MSF) France, an independent medical humanitarian organization that was actively involved in the Ebola relief efforts in West Africa.
Africa Stop Ebola was nominated for the award Fighting Ebola: a Grand Challenge for Development, a grant competition organized by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in partnership with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Department of Defense, calling for innovative ideas to help stop the spread of the disease in West Africa.
