NIHR Global Health Research Group on prevalence and impact of arthritis in Tanzania launches

A multidisciplinary team from the University of Glasgow led by HEHTA’s Professor Emma McIntosh attended the launch meeting of their recently funded NIHR Global Health Research Group on estimating the prevalence, quality of life, economic and societal impact of arthritis in Tanzania.‌

On October 11th-12th 2018 the team from Glasgow and Newcastle met with colleagues at the Kilimanjaro Clinical Research Centre (KCRC) in Tanzania for two days of project meetings. A number of external advisors also attended the launch including representatives from the non-communicable diseases department of the Tanzanian Ministry of Health.

The meeting was very successful, and we look forward to developing research, teaching and training capacity in the social sciences, rheumatology and epidemiology at KCRC over the next 3 years.
