Research & Publications
LIST OF PUBLICATIONS
Though we are a small hospital, we believe we need to be academically relevant. Being remote and rural does not exclude us from participating and contributing to research. Towards this end, we have always published papers in journals, contributed towards academia in terms of articles and presentations, and are very much part of a global consortium involved in research that is relevant to rural communities.
We have an institutional review board that provides the ethical clearance for all our work.
