Third Cohort of Chronic TRIAD Fellows Successfully Defend Theses and Graduate

The Johns Hopkins University-Makerere University Chronic Consequences of Trauma, Injuries and Disability in Uganda (JHU-MU Chronic TRIAD), is funded by the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health. Coordinated by the Johns Hopkins International Injury Research Unit (JH-IIRU) in the Department of International Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the JHU-MU Chronic TRIAD supports four cohorts of long-term trainees.

In February, five fellows from our third cohort successfully defended their TRIAD-related dissertations and graduated from the program.

The JHU-MU Chronic TRIAD program aims 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.

The program is based on the close partnership between Johns Hopkins and Makerere University School of Public Health, 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.

Below are the fellows and their dissertation titles:

Jennifer Namagembe successfully defended her dissertation, “Assessment of the nature of pre-hospital care provided to road traffic injury patients reporting to Mulago Hospital.”

Claire Biribawa successfully defended her dissertation, “Alcohol intoxication among bodaboda drivers, related injuries and health costs at Mulago National Hospital

Phoebe Alitubeera, a fellow from our supplementary training program on the intersection between Trauma/Disability and HIV in Uganda (JHU-MU supplementary grant), successfully defended her dissertation, “Utilization of post exposure prophylaxis among health workers following percutaneous injuries in public health facilities in Kampala Capital City.”

Arthur Kiconco successfully defended his dissertation, “Determinants of occupational injuries among building construction workers in Kampala City, Uganda.”

Lilian Kauma, a fellow from our supplementary training program on the intersection between Trauma/Disability and HIV in Uganda (JHU-MU supplementary grant), successfully defended her dissertation, “HIV-related disabilities and utilization of rehabilitation services by people living with HIV receiving care at the Mulago Immune Suppresive Syndrome Clinic, Kampala, Uganda.”

A National Symposium on Emergency Medical Services and a National Injury Forum

On April 26, 2017, faculty and staff attended the 3rd National Uganda Injury Forum. The theme of the forum was “Mainstreaming injury prevention and control within and across sectors.” The objectives of the forum were to: describe the work of various sectors in addressing road traffic injuries, gender based violence and occupational injuries; explore the opportunities for working together; and propose practical ways of working across sectors. At the forum, Dr. Abdul Bachani chaired a session on multi-sectoral response to road traffic injury. Nearly 200 people attended the one-day forum.

The forum and symposium were both organized by the Johns Hopkins University-Makerere University Chronic Consequences of Trauma, Injury and Disability (JHU-MU Chronic TRIAD) program, funded by the Fogarty International Center of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Read more about the Chronic TRIAD program.
