The SET- SRHR is a four-year project (2016-2020) funded by the Netherlands Universities’ Foundation for International Cooperation (NUFFIC). The Project aims to strengthen SRHR education and training capacity and contributes towards sustainable demographic and human capital development and inclusive economic growth in Uganda. A consortium led by ISS-EUR in collaboration with Rutgers in the Netherlands, and MakSPH and NTISD in Uganda is implementing the project.
Project outcomes and outputs are tracked around five key thematic strategies: i) Organizational Capacity Enhancement to strengthen the institutional capacity of MakSPH and NTISD to deliver evidence based and innovative SRHR education and training. ii). Revision and development of an accredited standardized gender and age sensitive Curriculum and iii) Curriculum Delivery via a professional and an academic track targeting diverse pre and in-service frontline SRHR professionals at various levels; iv) Research and documentation – high-quality academic and policy relevant SRHR research v) A sustainable SRHR Research Community of Practice – Utafiti na Kutenda – A platform for diverse stakeholders to network and engage in evidence-based SRHR policy and discourse and action.
