The Johns Hopkins – Makerere University Chronic Consequences of Trauma, Injuries and Disability (JHU-MU Chronic-TRIAD) program will serve the overall goal to strengthen research capacity on the long-term health and economic consequences of trauma, injuries and disability across the lifespan in Uganda through an innovative model of sustainable capacity development.
By addressing chronic consequences of trauma, injuries and disability in Uganda, we aim to 1) develop a core group of researchers at MUSPH through a variety of training activities; 2) promote research around key national priorities and themes that include the establishment and use of national databases relevant to injury, trauma and disability, development and evaluation of community-based interventions, and exploration of the social and economic costs; 3) establish a national forum for an annual research-to-policy dialogue; and 4) create a center for MUSPH research that enhances the sustainability of our efforts through activities that include increasing capacity for research management, research ethics coordination, proposal development, and producing continuing education materials.
