Goal, Aims and Model


The Johns Hopkins University-Makerere University School of Public Health (JHU-MUSPH) Chronic Trauma, Injuries, and Disability (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.

Our Aims

In 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.

Our Model

This program is based on the close partnership between JHU and MUSPH, two academic institutions with a strong commitment to understanding the long-term impact of trauma and injuries, experience in research, and a history of collaborative work. Our model will use JHU’s expertise to strengthen the Ugandan institution, promote a sustainable research enterprise focused on the chronic consequences of trauma, injuries, and disability, and enable national dissemination of research evidence to influence policy in Uganda.
