dc.description.abstractHaving two or more long-term conditions at the same time, known as multimorbidity, is a growing challenge globally. This workshop focused on finding out what is known about the extent and nature of multimorbidity and appropriate responses to it, where further research would be valuable and highlighted that addressing multimorbidity in a range of sub-Saharan countries will be heavily dependent on local contextual factors. On 5–6 September 2019, researchers from across sub-Saharan Africa gathered in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa, to discuss the specific challenges in addressing multimorbidity in the region and the role that research could play. In particular, the ways research could improve understanding of multimorbidity in sub-Saharan Africa and identify the most effective ways to prevent and treat it. The meeting was jointly organised by the Academy of Medical Sciences, UK, and the Academy of Science of South Africa. The meeting programme was developed by a steering committee chaired by Professor Alan Silman FMedSci, University of Oxford, UK, and Professor Karen Hofman MASSAf, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa, and included researchers from multiple sub-Saharan African countries (Annex One). This report provides a summary of the key themes to emerge from the meeting, as well as a set of high-level multimorbidity research priorities for the region. It reflects the views expressed by participants at the meeting and does not necessarily represent the views of all participants, all members of the steering committee, the Academy of Medical Sciences, or the Academy of Science of South Africa.en_ZA
