Promote 2019 Annual Meeting in Uganda

Makerere University –Johns Hopkins University (MU-JHU) Research Collaboration conducts clinical and translational research with a focus on HIV, TB and other conditions which affect the health and well-being of children, adolescents, women and their families. MUJHU was founded in 1988 as a collaboration between researchers from Makerere University and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA at a time when the AIDS epidemic was at its peak in Uganda, with an initial mission to improve the lives of families infected and affected by HIV through Research, Care and Training. In 2006, the MUJHU Research Collaboration was registered as a not-for-profit entity in Uganda entitled ‘MUJHU Care Limited’ with a continuation of the Collaboration’s vision and mission.

MUJHU has conducted several landmark research studies which have informed global and national policy and paved the way to Eliminate Mother to Child HIV Transmission and improve maternal and paediatric HIV care. Over the last decade, MUJHU has progressively expanded its clinical and implementation science research portfolio to include primary HIV prevention, tuberculosis diagnosis and management, paediatric neuro-development assessment and interventions, birth defects surveillance, women’s health including bone health and reproductive health, as well as development of a maternal vaccine platform to assess Group-B Streptococcus and other promising vaccines. MUJHU partners with many local and international academic and clinical partners to achieve its mission building on its longstanding Clinical Research Site affiliated with Johns Hopkins University.
