The UVRI with support from Training Health Researchers into Vocational Excellence (THRIVE-2) conducted a Mentorship Training in Scientific writing for 25 staff and students (MSC and PhD) in November 2020. A follow up training was planned to assess progress with publication of their work. This training is currently being conducted (20/04/2021 to 21/04/2021) and participants have shown a lot of interest. The follow up training targeted students (Msc and PhD) who already had drafts manuscripts or abstracts or published work. Facilitators were knowledgeable and were from UVRI senior Management and Makerere University.
One of the participants- Ms Phionah Tushabe already published her work, while another- Cindrella Ngozi had a draft manuscript; one had an abstract and several participants had research proposals.
We would like to acknowledge THRIVE and UVRI Management for the financial and Technical support that made this training successful.
