The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) is pleased to collaborate with the Aga Khan University (AKU) in the development of an International Collaborative Trauma and Injury Research Training Program (ICTIRT) that will develop this capacity for AKU and the country of Pakistan. The long range vision of the ICTIRT we are proposing is to establish an Institute for Injury and Trauma Research and Training at AKU that can serve not only Pakistan but other parts of South Asia as well. This proposal has five specific aims: 1) to develop a strategic plan for establishing an Institute for Injury and Trauma Research and Training at AKU; 2) to train a small nucleus of experts in injury and trauma research; 3) to train a critical mass of scientists, health professionals and academics in the principles of injury prevention and control; 4) to raise awareness among health and other professionals in Pakistan about the importance of injury and trauma research; and 5) to foster collaboration among injury and trauma researchers within Pakistan and establish linkages with the international injury research community.
