Working together to improve the lives of people affected by epilepsy in Zambia
This paper describes the Chikankata Epilepsy Care Team, a collaborative project between Michigan State University and the rural Zambian community of Chikankata, which works to improve the lives of people with epilepsy. The author describes the project’s evolution from a local nurse-medical student partnership in one rural Zambian hospital to a program that enriches clinical services and advocacy programs throughout Zambia. Lessons learned about what makes this collaborative project effective are presented.
