Alex Ario of Makerere University in Uganda, together with the Uganda National Institute of Public Health, the Ministry of Health of Uganda, and sister organizations in the East Africa region will expand their modeling capacities and establish collaborative research groups to apply modeling and data analytics to study health issues disproportionately affecting women. They will set up a multi-country steering committee to identify teams of modelers in Uganda, Kenya, and Rwanda. This committee will also select the most pressing women’s health issues and assign them to the modeling teams for investigation. They will also train modelers, particularly women, through on-the-job teaching and mentorship. The main findings from the collaborative studies will be disseminated to decision-makers and they will also advocate to influence policy.
