A $1.5 million grant will provide state-of-the-art training for 18 early-career researchers in Uganda to strengthen the capacity of research institutions in the country to address HIV/AIDS and its burden on child and adolescent mental health.

The five-year program will be led by Fred Ssewamala, the William E. Gordon Distinguished Professor at the Brown School and McDonnell Academy Ambassador to Makerere University, in partnership with Mary McKay, the Neidorff Family and Centene Corporation Dean of the Brown School; and Noeline Nakasujja, chair of the Department of Psychiatry in the School of Medicine at Makerere University in Uganda.
