  • Dr Mary Margaret Ajiko, is a general surgeon with interest in paediatric
    surgery. The PhD projects are related to epidemiology of paediatric surgical
    conditions and to what extent the need for surgical procedures is meet in
    Uganda. Further on, a qualitative study investigates perceptions of and
    barriers to surgical care among caregivers. Finally, a prospective cohort
    study will investigate outcome after paediatric surgery and test one or two
    interventions to reduce the risk of morbidity and mortality postoperatively.
    Combined, the paediatric surgery research will provide evidence that can be
    used to increase and improve paediatric surgical services in Uganda and other
    countries facing similar challenges.
