Welcome To MUJHU
The Makerere University - Johns Hopkins University Research Collaboration was founded by clinical researchers interested in finding ways to prevent HIV infection in children and dedicated to improving the health of women, children, and families who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. The collaboration started by scientists and clinicians from the US and Uganda has flourished dramatically into a diverse community of talented clinical investigators, scientific researchers and participants.
The Makerere University clinicians working at Mulago Hospital were seeing increasing numbers of patients with AIDS (“slim disease”), including infected pregnant women and babies; and the U.S. university investigators brought external funding, laboratory technology and other research endowments to help support the planned research activities.
