Uganda partnership celebrates 10 years

10 years of collaboration

In the fall of 2005, Asghar Rastegar, M.D., and Majid Sadigh, M.D., travelled to Kampala, Uganda, to explore a collaboration with Makerere College of Health Sciences and Mulago National Referral Hospital. Sadigh, an associate professor of medicine, had been traveling to Kampala since 2002, to teach under the umbrella of the Academic Alliance for HIV Prevention and Care. During his visits he noted a contrast between the advanced clinical and epidemiologic research activities at Makerere University and the challenges of patient care on the wards of Mulago Hospital.
