The University of Minnesota is celebrating ten years of collaboration, research, and education with the Infectious Disease Institute (IDI) at Makerere University. This event is meant to highlight achievements stemming from the partnerships with IDI and Makerere University, as well as to advance the work for the next 10 years and beyond.

We have created a Global Health Impact Map to broadly communicate the Academic Health Center's efforts in global health as well as to facilitate researchers and learners in connecting with each other for collaboration. We are currently in the process of populating the map and database with AHC faculty led research, education/training, clinical care, and community-based activities.
