Our aim is to improve the care of patients with skin and sexually transmitted disease who do not have access to specialist skills. For the most part this work is carried out through training health workers appropriate for the local environment. In addition we have been carrying out a series of needs assessments and developing as well as evaluating treatment regimens and protocols for more general use in resource poor regions
These have contributed to health care in areas as diverse as the control of common skin infections and the management of lymphoedema in lymphatic filariasis.
