Uganda Hub

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.
