Makerere University School of Public Health (MakSPH) in conjunction with the Ministry of Health (MoH), with support from the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (US CDC), has been implementing a health leadership and management capacity building program since 2002. The program focuses on two inter-related activities, namely; the Public Health Fellowship Program and the District Capacity Building Program.

The Public Health Fellowship Program follows in the foot-steps of the 2-year Long-term Fellowship Program that was implemented between 2002 and 2014. The long-term Fellowship Program initially focused on HIV/AIDS program management (2002-2010), but progressively expanded to include other health programs between 2011 and 2014; including Maternal and Child Health, Malaria, TB and Health Informatics, among others. In 2015, this program was strategically redesigned as the Public Health Fellowship Program with five inter-related tracks including Field Epidemiology. On the other hand, the District Capacity Building Program started off as an 8-month Medium-term Fellowship offering two independent but inter-related courses in Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) Fellowships (2008 2013).
