Project Description

Despite the significant burden and predicted future growth of trauma as a public health problem in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), there remains a gap in trauma research training and distinct limitations in quantitative offerings at institutions of higher education in the region. The proposed program will train a cadre of multidisciplinary trainees at three educational levels (MPH, Ph.D., and postdoctoral) to create a critical mass of trauma researchers in Cameroon with knowledge of novel, cutting edge quantitative methodologies. The program's team-mentoring approach aims to build capacity for public health investigators who are able to design, lead, implement and scale innovative, transdisciplinary interventions within Cameroon and the SSA region to improve trauma prevention and treatment outcomes.
