Podoconiosis is a non-infectious neglected tropical disease (NTD) caused by exposure to volcanic soils. It disproportionally affects poor and marginalised communities. Globally, around four million people are estimated to suffer from podoconiosis — over a third of those affected live in Ethiopia. This research project aims to improve prevention, diagnosis and management of podoconiosis in Ethiopia’s primary healthcare system.
