After 10 years of supporting efforts to strengthen the capacity of institutions in LMICs to conduct human injury and trauma research, Fogarty conducted an evaluation of its Fogarty Global Injury and Trauma Research Training Program. The report, guided by the Fogarty Framework for Program Assessment, analyzes program implementation, and identifies near-term and long-term outputs, outcomes and impacts.
The program has sought to create a cadre of researchers in LMICs who conduct research and research training related to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of injury and trauma. At publication of the report in September 2015, over 105 publications have been published with support from the program, and over 280 individuals received long-term trauma and injury research training.
In 2005, Fogarty and partnering institutions, the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI), National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), and U.S. Department of State's Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation (ISN), established the program to address the many global challenges of trauma and injury.
