Kyambogo University is one of the big universities in Uganda with a big student population and many study programs. As such, some programs go unnoticed despite their importance and relevant to national building. One such program is Master of Public Health.
This Master’s program is one of the new ones with its pioneers in their second semester of first year. Public health has never been needed as these days of pandemics, slums, HIV/AIDS, maternal challenges and all. It is good news that Kyambogo has started such a program.
The good thing is that the pioneer students are such industrious highfliers! I recently had an engagement with them; six gentlemen with their two queens as they dotingly call themselves.
As we discussed, we realized that as a community, we haven’t fully understood what they are capable of as individuals but also as a program of study.
As we continue reading in these pages, we will find a lot more about them, but also, in the future publications, we will find their immense contribution.
