VAX PROJECT

HEPS Uganda together with Global Health Collaborative is partnering to implement the Advocacy to Accelerate Access to COVID-19 Vaccines in Uganda project which involves a series of activities based in Uganda to catalyze urgent action toward COVID-19 vaccine equity.  

Through these activities, the project aims to achieve increased civil society's capacity to advocate for an end to COVID-19 vaccine nationalism, increased funding by national and international stakeholders for COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics in Uganda, accelerated implementation of proposed waivers for intellectual property rights of COVID-19 technologies and engagement in technology transfer and improved population awareness of COVID-19 vaccine effectiveness and safety. 

This project is implemented by GHC  which is leading COVID-19 vaccination efforts in the city of Mbarara and has experience organizing dozens of funded global health research projects across the country, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), which founded and has supported GHC since 2003 as well as HEPS - Uganda.
