This UGX 185 billion grant win by Prof. William Bazeyo is unprecedented. It’s the largest single grant win by an academician in the history of Uganda. What is important about this grant is that it is to benefit the entire country. Well done Prof. Bazeyo, you have set the bar high!
The grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) under the US President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) will support the Ministry of Health under a five year project. Prof. Bazeyo is the Principal Investigator (PI) of the project “Strengthening the Government of Uganda’s Capacity for Regionally Centered and District Implemented HIV and TB Programming through Health Information Systems, Case Based Surveillance, Monitoring, Evaluation and Quality Improvement Support under PEPFAR”
