12-Year Report

Twelve years ago, Makerere University School of Public Health (MakSPH) with support from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched a fellowship programme that has created a great impact on health workforce development.

The programme has trained 107 long-term fellows (13 of who are graduating today December 17, 2014) and 207 medium-term fellows. The majority of these fellows are employed in high-level positions in government and non-government organizations in Uganda and elsewhere. In the first five years, the programme focused on supporting fellows to acquire skills in managing HIV/AIDS programmes.

However, in the past seven years, the programme focus expanded to encompass other health programmes including maternal and child health, health informatics, malaria, and tuberculosis
among others. Beginning 2014, the programme will focus on supporting the public health sector through the Uganda Public Health Fellowship Program and capacity building for District-led Programming.
