The Uganda Hub is anchored by a strong collaboration between the University of Minnesota and Makerere University that has been growing since 2005.
The University of Minnesota Academic Health Center (AHC) established the Uganda Hub in August 2015. The Hub aims to focus engagement on pressing global health challenges through key partnerships that lay the foundation for sustainable organizational infrastructure for interdisciplinary research and education, allowing for the creation and exchange of new knowledge within a culture of reciprocal engagement. The Hub is guided by the Minnesota-Uganda Partnerships Group.
The URTC provides students with hands-on experience in global health research. Under faculty mentorship, students propose research projects to be carried out as a team.
Global Health Seed Grants for research in Uganda support partnerships between faculty from the University of Minnesota and institutions in Uganda in pursuing global health research.
