High quality research is a major driver of scientific progress. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of health research in Tanzania. We aim to create knowledge that can be used by scientists and the community in general. Our ultimate goal is to create measurable improvement in the health care system with the help of evidence based methods.
Community Engagement is a vital part of our research activities. We work on building partnerships between the research team and the community to ensure that the research performed is ethically sound and it targets relevant health issues. This partnership is strengthened through a Community Advisory Board comprised of representatives from human rights, local community leaders, religious leaders, local and government authorities by acting as a bridge between the research team and the community in general.
Capacity building leading to ethical, quality and innovative research translates into better health in our communities. Our institution is proud to be at the forefront of introducing innovative technologies in the region and the country. Capacity development on the use of the above is one of our priorities to enable the use of faster more accurate and safe diagnosis and treatment methods.
