Innovations for accelerating reduction in maternal, newborn and child mortality in post conflict Uganda: Project number 344-2014:

The Government of Uganda and Government of Sweden have renewed their research Cooperation Agreement for the next five years (2015 – 2020). The main objective of the bilateral research cooperation is to increase the capacity of Makerere and Partner public Universities to generate knowledge and promote research uptake for national and regional development.

The Sida 344 project aims at building academic capacity for leadership, skills and evidence to address maternal, newborn and child health issues in order to accelerate efforts to achieve SDG targets. We hope to do so by training PhD students, postdocs, and masters’ students of midwifery for Makerere, Gulu and Lira Universities.
