Project Title: Increasing Community Awareness and Early Referral of Arthritis Patients in the Periurban slums of Namuwongo, Kampala, Uganda, East Africa
There is limited specialized Rheumatology care in Uganda. Joint diseases (arthritis) are a common disorder and can cause significant morbidity limiting movement, performance of day to day activities, proper posture and productivity most especially when confined to wheel chairs. This project seeks to increase awareness and treatment of joint disease in the periurban slums of Namuwongo in conjuction with IMF Uganda and therefore help those affected seek early proper care at the referral center.
