Malawi Liverpool Wellcome Programme

The Multilink Consortium

This is a UK National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) funded programme administered through LSTM with five partner organisations including MLW. It is being conducted in Malawi and Tanzania and seeks to design and test a system that identifies patients suffering from multiple chronic diseases (multimorbidity) when they seek emergency care in sub-Saharan African hospitals. The overall aim is to improve early disease treatment, and ensure better follow-up (prevent complications, disability and hospital readmission), thus improving health-related quality of life and survival rates.
