About The Program

This study,  PSYchosis MAPping in KwaZulu-Natal, is built from a pilot study  investigating the incidence rate, early course and treatment capacity of FEP in Vulindlela Township (KwaZulu-Natal), and pathways to care for individuals with psychosis. The new study in KwaZulu-Natal province will mix urban and rural areas and include people with high rates of risk factors such as HIV, violence, poverty, and rural-urban migration. This project is funded by MRC-UK, and Dr. Ezra Susser is a member of the Steering Committee.
