Research & Innovation
Our mission is to generate new knowledge and evidence-based interventions for crucial health challenges identified by the communities we serve.
Since 2003, the Collaborative has grown to include over 20 research and innovation protocols employing over 110 local staff members and academic partnerships with three prominent international universities. Over the last 10 years, scientific findings from the Collaborative have been disseminated in over 400 peer-reviewed publications and nearly 4000 citations. Recent emphasis has been placed on mentorship of MUST students by faculty from our international partners. In the past two years, faculty and students at MUST have published 8-first-author manuscripts in peer reviewed journals and another 10 have first-author manuscripts in preparation or under review. We have research protocols in four different areas; Innovation, HIV/ARV Adherence, Database & Clinical support and Communicable & Environmental disease.
