With an objective of sharing knowledge on the various research initiatives of BRAC Uganda, a Knowledge Forum was launched by the Research and Evaluation Team on the 29th of January 2011. In the first meeting of the Forum, Munshi Sulaiman, Coordinator, Research presented an evaluation of a food for training programme in South Sudan. Aisha Nansamba, Health Research Associate also presented research ideas around the TB detection programme in Uganda. The presentations were followed by discussions on appropriate approaches, combining qualitative and quantitative methodologies and findings.

The Forum is critical to ensure BRAC Uganda continues as a learning organisation and maintains a culture of rigorous research. It is also hoped that the Forum will evolve into a platform for sharing research findings with other audiences particularly practitioners and users of researchers.

The Forum will be meeting every Saturday with the participation of the Research and Evaluation Team to discuss both completed and ongoing research. This we hope will feed back into stronger and more integrated methodologies and analysis. The meetings will also be open for Programme Managers and other interested participants.

Is this knowledge forum open to faculty and students from Makerere and other local universities?
