The broad aim of this project is to examine the cultural, social, organisational and clinical characteristics for the burden of living with and caring for people who live with Muscle, Bone and Joint (MuBoJo) conditions in Shoshong, Botswana. Through a focused ethnography, we aim to better understand life lived with MuBoJo conditions and give voice to rural villagers who suffer from or care for others with MuBoJo troubles. These data will inform World Spine Care initiatives where we partner with community members to develop research, educational and care pathways delivered by villagers for villagers.
