For several decades, research efforts in Sub-Saharan Africa have focused mainly on Infectious diseases. However, Chronic diseases, both Communicable and Non-Communicable and Injuries now represent; according to WHO and the World Bank, the main causes of morbidity and mortality that can strain the health budgets of Developing Countries and undermine economic development efforts. The determinants of the increase in Chronic diseases such as Diabetes and Cardiovascular diseases, Cancers and Trauma (mainly related to road insecurity) remain poorly known in our environment. Therefore, our main research areas are primarily:
- OPTIMIZATION OF CERVICAL CANCER SCREENING BY HPV TEST AMONG WOMEN LIVING WITH HIV IN CAMEROON (OPTITRI): Cervical cancer (UCC) is a major cause of death among women living with HIV/AIDS (WHA) in resource-limited countries.
- SCALING-UP HEALTHY NUTRITION INTERVENTIONS IN ADOLESCENTS AND PREGNANCY IN CAMEROON: Cameroon – like most low- and middle-income countries – faces the double burden of malnutrition (DMN) and its consequences.
- EARLY NCDS PREVENTION IN CAMEROON SCHOOLS WDF 16/1434: Through the Early Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) Prevention in Cameroon Schools WDF 16/1434 project, funded by the World Diabetes Foundation.
- THE YOUNG-ONSET DIABETES IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA (YODA): The life expectancy of type 1 diabetic patients (T1D) in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) is very low.
- DOXYCOV PROJECT: Faced with the threat of the SARS-Cov-2 epidemic, RSD Institute has made a commitment to the national health authorities for the management of COVID-19.
