Project Description

In order to address evolving challenges within the HIV prevention and care continua, we propose to establish an interdisciplinary research training program at Makerere University College of Health Sciences (MakCHS) to strengthen behavioral and social science research (BSSR) expertise in HIV. The program will build on existing partnerships of MakCHS and its affiliated HIV programs, the Makerere University College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the University of California, San Francisco, Yale University, and programs supported by USAID, CDC and PEPFAR. The program seeks to build capacity for BSSR, utilizing an implementation science lens to improve HIV intervention, service delivery and patient engagement throughout the HIV continua of care and prevention.
