Skin Health African Research Programme
Funded by the UK’s United Kingdom National Institute for Health Research, we are an experienced group of researchers with wide-ranging skills: epidemiology, clinical medicine, social sciences and anthropology, clinical trials, health economics, public health, laboratory sciences and diagnostics. Together, we will take a broad approach to the common problem of skin disease to help deliver healthy skin and healthy lives.
Neglected tropical diseases of the skin - such as Buruli ulcer, cutaneous leishmaniasis, leprosy, and yaws - are associated with physical disability, psychological distress, financial hardship, and social isolation. Conducted with affected individuals, communities, and other stakeholders, our research programme comprises three projects in Ethiopia and Ghana.
