Project Description

The continuation of the partnership training program for the Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore and the Infectious Diseases Institute (IDI) in Uganda will train postcoctoral fellows, Ph.D., and master's students, who will be mentored by a pool of dedicated local mentors, guided by an international faculty who have previously engaged in funded, regionally relevant, published research in HIV and co-infections (tuberculosis, cryptococcal meningitis, viral hepatitis, and long term complication). At the end of this five-year training program, our overarching objective is to solidify a core group of productive local mentors, who in turn can train scholars in garnering outside funding, mentoring others, and being recognized as regional, international, leaders who are able to influence policy and practice in the area of HIV and co-infections.
