Frequently Asked Questions

How can UUKHA support my partnership?

Support to Uganda UK health partnerships is routinely done by the UUKHA secretariats in Uganda and UK and is done through either direct contact with the relevant secretariat staff or through the UUKHA email address

Why should my institution join UUKHA?

When a UK institution becomes a member of UUKHA, it gives them the opportunity to share learning and experiences with other member institutions doing similar work perhaps in the same region of Uganda. The institution will also enjoy the timely feedback and updates on collaborative opportunities from the Uganda Ministry of Health.

Can I join UUKHA as an individual?

No. The membership is restricted to UK institutions/organizations undertaking healthcare capacity building in Uganda’s health sector. So if you represent an institution that is not registered with UUKHA yet, please follow the link to register

How can I volunteer in Uganda?
