Evaluation of the New Curriculum of the College of Health Sciences, Makerere University (Uganda)

A dramatic curriculum change process has recently been implemented within the Makerere University medical training facility, as requested by Makerere and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation and the World Bank. The changes to the curriculum were designed through a facilitated participatory process aimed at producing health professionals with expanded competencies. The new curriculum was deemed necessary to prepare health professionals to respond to the new demands of decentralized health service delivery, to tackle new pandemics such as HIV/AIDS and Ebola, and to meet the needs of patients in under-served rural areas. Since the new curriculum was requested by Makerere University, the case provides an opportunity to evaluate cutting edge innovation driven by the South. This grant will support the evaluation, plus a number of peer-reviewed scientific papers and other communication materials.
