Friday, 01 Jun 2012

Last month, Makerere University hosted a number of special guests. MPs from the UK visited the institute to discuss the latest round of DFID funded health research projects. They were interested in the impact these projects are having on the overall capacity building in Uganda and also how they supporting improved health service provision.

Dr Freddie Ssengooba (pictured right) represented the ReBUILD Uganda team and delivered a presentation about our project in Northern Uganda, the implications of the conflict on health systems in the country and the overall aims of the project.

There were also presentations about DFID funded projects led by Future Health Systems to improve the transport and conditions facing Ugandan women in labour and PRIME, a research project that focusses on treatment programmes for priority mental health disorders.
