Makerere University - Johns Hopkins University Research Collaboration

In 1988, we started as a collaboration between researchers from Makerere University in  Kampala and Case Western Reserve University in USA by founders; the late Prof. Francis A. Mmiro, the late Prof Christopher M. Ndugwa, Prof. Brooks Jackson and Prof.  Laura Guay.

The Makerere University clinicians working at Mulago Hospital were seeing increasing numbers of patients with AIDS (“slim disease”), including infected pregnant women and babies; and the U.S. university investigators brought external funding, laboratory technology and other research endowments to help support the planned research activities.
