About the Organisation

Makerere University Joint AIDS Program (MJAP) emerged from the Mulago-Mbarara Teaching Hospitals Joint AIDS Program (MJAP) which was established in November 2004 under the then Makerere University Faculty of Medicine. With funding from the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and technical assistance from the United States of America Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), MJAP established a strong trail in the provision of quality comprehensive HIV/AIDS and Tuberculosis (TB) services.

Overtime, MJAP has broadened its work beyond the support of provision of comprehensive HIV and TB services to include capacity strengthening for health care workers across Uganda and conduct of research to inform policies for HIV/TB and other HIV comorbidities in the country.

Currently, the flourishing institution plays a pivotal role in the Uganda health care system having developed strong links with the Ministry of Health through its contribution to various technical working groups and long term support of HIV/TB services in districts, regional referral hospitals and public health facilities across the various regions in the country.
