Aims of the Project

This project will include:

  • Building robust partnerships with national and international academic departments, global institutions and clinical burns services.
  • Developing a portfolio of high quality evidence-based research, training and capacity-building tools to identify and address global burn injury, with particular focus on resource-poor and conflict settings.
  • Advocating for effective, evidence-based regional and national policies for burn prevention and treatment.
  • Working in partnership with key policy-makers, funders and philanthropists to increase resource allocation to tackle the ’forgotten global public crisis’ of burn injuries.
  • Utilising systems thinking, implementation science and knowledge to action theory to support the scaling up of proven interventions and promote their integration into national health strategies.

Creating a global hub for aspiring clinicians and researchers dedicated to global burn care to exchange ideas, share innovations and work in an inspiring and interdisciplinary environment.
