Footwork: The International Podoconiosis Initiative

Research Report

In 2013, a small group of GRG researchers from the Jackson School developed a report detailing all US institutions involved in podoconiosis (podo) research and funding for Williamsworks. Using both regional and international case-studies of effective NGO efforts, the researchers developed a model that established a national coalition against podo with actors from the public, private, and non-profit sector. The GRG research team then effectively mapped out funding opportunities and future research collaboration for Footwork (an International Podoconiosis Initiative) in Rwanda and Uganda and built a diversified funding strategy for the organization.
