Communications and Engagement section

The aim of the Communication and Engagement section is to support the research of the Unit, through effective engagement with stakeholders at local, national and international levels using a range of approaches. The section also coordinates the translation of research into policy and practice in Uganda and elsewhere in sub Saharan Africa.

As part of community engagement, projects at the Unit make provision for mobilization of community members to participate in research activities and where appropriate, counselling services are provided. Community Advisory Boards (CAB) were also introduced especially where we conduct HIV prevention research.
