Understanding the long-term health, social, and economic impact of injuries: A pilot study using e-Health technologies in Malaysia

Injuries present a significant challenge to populations in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). With 90% of this burden in LMICs, the impact of this burden on individuals, families, and the society, especially in the case of non-fatal injuries, is exacerbated by the absence of insurance or social support mechanisms. Malaysia, like other LMICs globally is facing an increasing burden of injuries. There is a dearth of information in the literature on the occurrence of non-fatal injuries, and their long-term consequences. We aim to develop innovative methods to understanding the immediate and long-term health (disability), social and economic impact of injuries. The specific objectives of this study are: 1) to develop and pilot test a electronic e-tool to examine the long-term health (prevalence, severity and duration of disability), social, and economic impact of traumatic non-fatal injuries; 2) to develop and implement an e-data collection and monitoring module using the new tool for capturing traumatic injuries and following individuals over time, for use in LMICs; and 3) to document the burden of traumatic non-fatal injuries in Kajang, Malaysia. This proposal combines the strengths of a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional team encompassing two departments at the School of Public Health, with the School of Medicine at Johns Hopkins, along with Perdana University (a JHU supported institution), and Universiti Putra Malaysia, in Malaysia. Findings from the proposed work will lead to the development of a NSF-PIRE and MOSTI grant proposals for conducting a multi-country pilot of the newly developed methods in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
