Project Description

Implementation science (ImS) is key to addressing the persistent challenges to HIV elimination in Uganda, but research capacity is still limited. Building on existing partnerships between Makerere University (MU), its affiliated HIV programs and the University of California, San Francisco, we have established a pioneer ImS Research Training Program at MU, built a strong foundation for ImS in Uganda, and influenced practices along the cascade of HIV care. The Program focus of the next period is to create sustained growth of the ImS research environment at MU and the application of ImS to HIV research and service delivery on a larger scale in Uganda.
