Non-Communicable Diseases are an emerging global pandemic with disproportionately higher rates in developing countries. Uganda with a large rural based population, requires development and implementation of evidence-based interventions to address real-life problems and provide sustainable solutions. The Building capacity for Implementation Science research in Non-Communicable Diseases (BImS-NCDs)” training hub at MUST, will provide leadership, best practices, research support, mentoring and training in epidemiological, prevention, and implementation science approaches in NCDs across the lifespan to the partner institutions in rural Uganda.
