Engagement As Operational Research

From a national and international context, MCRI’s key relationships with community helps to ensure that important research findings make a difference to local people and medical care throughout the region – and thus have an influence far beyond the geographic areas in which the institute operates.

Mbale Clinical Research Institute is committed to engaging with the local community, to discuss their research and to build mutual understanding and trust between the institute and the community by responding to various biomedical and clinical concerns.

By developing strong links with the immediate community, the institute can ensure that its activities and clinical trials are accepted and approved by local authorities and communities – a prerequisite for its long-term studies. Furthermore, the close collocation of research studies and application can aid in ensuring that its activities are focused on delivering practical benefits.
