Based at the Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research in Tropical Medicine (KCCR) in Ghana, our main goal is to conduct cross-cutting interdisciplinary research in global health and infectious diseases and to provide guidance to reduce the burden of these diseases in Ghana and beyond.
The Research Group “Infectious Disease Epidemology” based at KCCR is a part of the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNITM) in Hamburg, Germany.
Our main focus is the performance of studies on communicable diseases in humans. The concept includes the planning, preparation, supervision, performance and analysis of observational studies and clinical trials, combining classical, molecular and clinical epidemiology. Focus diseases are malaria, salmonellosis, cryptosporidiosis, sepsis, neglected tropical diseases (NTD) and co-infections in resource-poor settings.
The group is interested in the development, evaluation and application of advanced diagnostics of infectious diseases, integration of electronic surveillance, definition of health priorities, and the analysis of the pathogens and their transmission conditions. The latter includes the analysis of genetic, environmental, socio-economic, demographic, and spatio-temporal risk factors on the host site as well as influence factors of the pathogens and vectors. The superior aim is the translation of results to implementation of diagnostics, treatment, prevention and capacity building in endemic countries.
The field studies are mainly performed at the Agogo Presbiterian Hospital and communities in the Ashanti Region. Other cooperation partners are in many other Ghanaian regions and other African countries specially Madagascar, Gabon and Tanzania.
