Dear researchers, health workers, policy makers, students and members of the Makerere University as well as the public/civil society,

On behalf of the Makerere University College of Health Sciences, I take this opportunity to invite and welcome you to the 15th Joint Annual Scientific Health (JASH) Conference 2022, scheduled to take place for 3 days from Wednesday21st – Friday 23rd September 2022 at Speke Resort Munyonyo, Kampala Uganda.

The theme of this year’s conference is: Makerere @100: The role of Health Professions’ Education in strengthening Health Systems, Research, Global and Community Health for Economic development

As we position ourselves in the global health community to face the realities of the changing world and in line with the United Nations 2030 agenda for sustainable development, health continues to play an important role in development. The cornerstone of achieving sustainable development is woven in the fabric of a healthy population in each country especially the developing countries but keeping in mind the global community as a whole. The achievement of health care for all will take a determined, healthy population working together in a collective effort with policy makers that understand the benefits of investing in the health of a nation and its citizens. This conference will focus on several sub-themes, namely: Health Systems; Community Health; HIV and other Infectious Diseases; Non-communicable Diseases; Emerging and re-emerging Diseases; Mining, Occupational Health and Safety; Maternal and Child Health; Health Professions Education; Health and Business; One Health (Human, Animal and Environmental Health interaction); Emergency Care; Antimicrobial Resistance.

Each of these sub-themes highlights important areas of focus that are linked to the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that we need to critically understand as we work towards achieving National and Global health Care for All. Indeed, the theme for this conference reflects the need for a holistic approach encompassing all these sub-themes in order to ensure that countries partner together to build an environment for sustainable development.

The conference is being organised by the Makerere University College of Health Sciences in collaboration with the Uganda National Association of Community and Occupational Health (UNACOH), Ministry of Health Uganda, and the WHO-sponsored 20th Dr. Mathew Lukwiya Memorial Lecture.

Audience: The conference will be attended by re-known health/medical researchers/scientists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, veterinarians, social Workers from Universities in Uganda, other regional and global institutions; directors of health institutions/NGOs as well as policy makers from various government Ministries in Uganda, Africa and global agencies.

I hope that attendance of this conference will provide you with an opportunity to network as you disseminate your research findings or clinical/community experience to an important and influential audience. We will host select training programs that will highlight the available opportunities for research training.

I welcome you to register, submit abstracts and attend this premier scientific annual meeting in Kampala, Uganda. More information about the conference is available at the conference website
