Mycetoma Research Centre - University of Khartoum

In 1991, The Mycetoma Research Centre (MRC) was established under the umbrella of the University of Khartoum. It was set up at Soba University Hospital. Currently, the MRC is recognised globally as a world leader and an authoritative advisor in mycetoma management and research. It is the only WHO Collaborating Centre on Mycetoma.

The centre is dedicated to the continuing discovery and development of scientific knowledge and clinical skills applied to the care of patients for Mycetoma World Free. Its vision is to continue as a world-leading to lead the change in the mycetoma patients quality of life. MRC mission is to eradicate mycetoma, as a life-mutilating disease, through the advancement of medical care, research, education and disease prevention.

The MRC staff members are of medical, health and science backgrounds; they are interested in all facets related to Mycetoma and have good track records in patients’ management, teaching, research and community development. Through clinical and basic research, the MRC has continually explored new approaches to patients’ management.

The MRC has managed around 10,000 patients from Sudan and overseas free of charge. MRC worked with the Federal Ministry of Health to establish a National Mycetoma Control Programme and established two mycetoma satellite centres in mycetoma endemic villages and treated thousands of patients there. Various community development activities were conducted, and patients socioeconomic support and community engagement activities were offered.

MRC has conducted many research projects to close the knowledge gap in the various aspects of mycetoma. It published more than 250 articles in peer-reviewed journals and presently collaborates with 23 international research institutions, NGOs, and highly reputable bodies to improve mycetoma patients’ management, disseminate evidence-based new scientific information, and the capacity building of health care providers.
