Project Summary

Makerere University College of Health Sciences’ EIPHIV equips Uganda’s next generation of HIV health care providers to be interprofessional practitioners, with enhanced knowledge and skills aligned with PEPFAR Country Operational Plans (COPs) and Uganda Ministry of Health (MoH) priorities. This upholds the principles of continuous quality improvement (CQI) and continuous learning to provide high-quality, team-based care for people living with HIV. This interprofessional training program builds on existing linkages between MEPI, Makerere University, Makerere University joint AIDS Program, Uganda AIDS Control Program, Nsambya Nursing School, Clarke International University, Busitema University, and Kabale University.
