On Friday, March 8, 2019, research from the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit team was presented at the 10th Annual Consortium of Universities for Global Health (CUGH) conference.

Doctoral Candidate Nukhba Zia presented a pair of posters stemming from JH-IIRU’s traumatic brain injury (TBI) project in Uganda.

In “Traumatic Brain Injury in Uganda – Development of Hospital Based m-health Registry Using Injury Surveillance Framework,” JH-IIRU researchers and collaborators took a scientific approach to data collection in low- and middle-income countries, and detailed the steps of developing an internet-based TBI registry in Uganda.

Zia also presented on behalf of the team in the poster on “Causes and Outcomes of Unintentional and Intentional Traumatic Brain Injuries among Children in Uganda: Analysis from Hospital-Based Traumatic Brain Injury Registry,” which assessed the causes and outcomes of unintentional and intentional TBI among children presenting to a tertiary-care hospital in Uganda.

The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health was well represented with exhibitors, as Global Health NOW and the Department of International Health greeted conference visitors in the conference exhibition.
