Published Date:June 2013
Corporate Authors:Center for Global Health (U.S.)
Description:The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) partnership with Uganda dates to 1991 when the agency began research there involving HIV/AIDS. By 1994, CDC had established a field epidemiology training program (FETP) at Makerere University, and, by 1998, had in place a permanent country director and a memorandum of understanding with the ministry of health (the Ministry). With the establishment of PEPFAR in 2003, Uganda became a focus country for the initiative and CDC began supporting the implementation of HIV prevention, care, and treatment services. CDC continues to partner with the Ministry as well as more than two dozen indigenous organizations in provision of these and other health services.
