Doctoral Training Opportunity at MakSPH

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is increasingly contributing to global burden of disease with health systems struggling to effectively manage prevention and control. This necessitates contextually appropriate policy relevant solutions with high scale-up potential. With a capacity building grant from the Swedish Intenational Development Agency (SIDA), a research team at the Makerere University School of Public Health with collaborators at Karolinsika Institute will be conducting a research titled "Innovating health systems and healthcare delivery in rural Uganda: towards building critical capacity to tackle the rising Type 2 Diabetes challenge"; with overall the aim of strengthening capacity for T2D prevention and care. Adoctoral training scholarship is available under this collaborative research. The scholarship will support tuiton fees, relevant short courses, publication costs as well as relevant scientific presentations at local and international conferences. - See more at:
