Mycetoma is a massively neglected tropical disease affecting the poorest of the poor in impoverished, remote underprivileged communities. In endemic regions, it has many detrimental effects on patients, families, communities and the health system. There is a knowledge gap in the various aspects of mycetoma, and hence, there is a need to bridge this through high-quality, cutting-edge research.

Vision:
• To be the global Mycetoma Young Researchers forum to encourage them to work together to improve the affected patients' quality of life.

Mission:
• To train and encourage young researchers to conduct sound research.
