This is a qualitative and priority setting study done in one rural and one urban area in three countries; Ghana, South Africa, and Rwanda. Amongst trauma patients, timely access to quality care remains inequitable with gaps in health services leading to barriers to care seen amongst those who are the poorest or otherwise vulnerable. Unfortunately, very little evidence exists of the identity and extent of these barriers, solutions to overcome them, and their priority in lower and middle income countries (LMICs.). This study aimed to identify barriers to access to quality care for people who have been injured in Ghana, South Africa, and Rwanda. In each country we have; 1. Conducted a two day workshop with policy makers, infrastructure providers, service users, and healthcare workers to identify barriers to access to quality injury care and prioritise solutions to overcome these barriers; 2. Conducted focus group discussions with persons who have accessed care for injury to further explore barriers to access to care from the service user perspective; 3. Conducted in-depth interviews with persons who have required injury care for themselves or their relatives to explore lived experiences of accessing healthcare for people who have been injured; 4. Conducted a survey of experiences of healthcare for those who have been injured using a standardised questionnaire; 5. Conducted focus group discussions with community leaders to explore their experiences with or observations of barriers to accessing care amongst their community members; 6. Done a governance assessment of trauma care in each country; 7. Created pathways to care maps from discussions with health workers in each country; 8. Convened a meeting of investigators, policy makers, and service user representatives at the end to discuss findings and outline future direction.
