What Have We Learned About Hydrocephalus in Africa?

Abstract

The CURE Children’s Hospital of Uganda was established in January 2001. Since then,
over 750 children have been treated for hydrocephalus. This high volume of patients has
allowed us to address questions about hydrocephalus in Africa that have previously been
unanswered. The International Federation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus has been a
crucial partner in this project. This talk summarizes some of what we have learned over
the past 3.5 years.
