Partners and collaborators
Mycetoma Research Centre
The Mycetoma Research Centre (MRC) is a global leader in mycetoma management and research. The Centre was set up in 1991, at the University of Khartoum, and in 2015 was recognised as a WHO collaborating centre on mycetoma. The main aim of the centre is to increase the quality of life for mycetoma patients and generate evidence based developments in mycetoma care.
The centre recognises the importance of taking a multidisciplinary approach to mycetoma management, as holistic care includes medical, surgical and rehabilitative interventions. Community involvement is recognised as essential to improve care seeking behaviour and patient support, as most mycetoma patients reside in resource poor and remote rural access. Research, innovation and the transfer of knowledge form the cornerstone of the MRC practice.
