Building capacity for patient-centered outcomes research to improve the quality and impact of HIV care in Tanzania

Project: Research project

Description

In this grant, we propose to strengthen the PCOR capacity of the Tanzanian Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) HIV research community with a long-term goal of incorporating this discipline into studies to optimize PCC in HIV facilities in Dar es Salaam, and improve patient and health system outcomes.This grant will support 6 post-doctoral fellows, 2 Masters and 2 PhD students through long and medium-term PCOR trainings. Short-term PCOR skills building, mentorship and teaching and curriculum design workshops will train over 100 participants in PCOR, mentorship and teaching. Annual symposia will provide opportunities for the broader community of HIV investigators to disseminate their research and form new collaborations. Through this program we will achieve the overall goal of training a new generation of independent Tanzanian HIV PCOR investigators, mentoring them on the path to independence and leading the way for MUHAS to become a center of excellence in PCOR in Tanzania.
