Last week we told you about our project in rural Tanzania designed to test the effectiveness of a mobile app for facilitating the collaboration between traditional healers and biomedical professionals to better address psychosis.

Today we would like to share our video which recaps the 18 month project – a partnership between CAMH’s Office of Transformative Global Health and  the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) in Tanzania , funded by Grand Challenges Canada.
