The Mycetoma Research Center, in collaboration with partners both nationally and internationally, is dedicated to pursuing innovative solutions aimed at enhancing the lives of individuals afflicted by mycetoma, as well as their families, communities, and the healthcare systems within endemic areas. Through rigorous scientific inquiry of the highest caliber, we are steadfast in our commitment to advancing knowledge and understanding of mycetoma. Our aim is to develop tangible interventions and strategies that not only alleviate the suffering of those affected but also foster sustainable improvements in healthcare delivery and community well-being.
