Makerere University and a consortium of partners led by the University of California San Diego have won a five-year global health study project worth US$38 Million. The project code-named “Agency for All” will research and promote the voices of low-and-middle-income people within their communities and within health development programming.

The Project is intended to address multiple dimensions of health and wellbeing including maternal and child health, infectious diseases, HIV/AIDS, family planning and reproductive health. The project will be implemented in East and West Africa as well as South Asia.
