Makerere University (Kampala, Uganda) is a regional Centre of Excellence, with three decades of experience in HCD, implementation and multidisciplinary research. Established in 1922 as a humble technical school, Makerere University is one of the oldest and most prestigious Universities in Africa. In January of that year, the school, which was later renamed Uganda Technical College, opened its doors to 14-day students who began studying Carpentry, Building and Mechanics.

The College soon began offering various other courses in Medical Care, Agriculture, Veterinary Sciences and Teacher Training. It expanded over the years to become a Center for Higher Education in East Africa in 1935. In 1937, the College started developing into an institution of higher education, offering post-school certificate courses.

Makerere will blend social sciences and public health with a focus on social determinants of health, MCH, GBV, and social norms. It has a network of research centers to support collaboration and hub activities across the region.
