Neurosurgical Needs and Assets in Public Hospitals of Uganda

This mixed methods study will assess both assets and perceived needs for a successful neurosurgical program from the medical staff at three Ugandan hospital sites. Both quantitative and qualitative tools will be used to assess needs and assets in order to improve the existing neurosurgical program at New Mulago Hospital in Kampala, and to plan for the establishment of new neurosurgical programs in Gulu and Mbarara.
