Uganda Medicine Grand Rounds
MESAU stands for Medical Education for Services to All Ugandans. The universities are Makerere, Mbarara, Gulu, Kampala International University and Busitema University. MESAU is a consortium of universities in Uganda formed under the Medical Education Partnership Initiative (MEPI) funding from the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).
As MESAU’s “Northern” partner, the Johns Hopkins Center for Clinical Global Health Education (CCGHE) has the great privilege to coordinate the Johns Hopkins University’s technical assistance to MESAU. The mission of the CCGHE at Hopkins is to provide access to high quality training to health care providers in resource-limited communities. The MESAU leadership has asked Hopkins to provide support in 5 strategic areas, including monitoring and evaluation, research capacity building, IRB strengthening, curriculum development and IT/distance learning.
