Research Projects

IHSU is starting a one year project focused on health Education of Kibuli community members. This is a follow- up of the Confidential Enquiry into Maternal and Child deaths project which focused. Limitations on knowledge and Education about maternal and child healthcare as well as health-seeking behaviours came out strongly as one on the causes of deaths of mothers and children in Kibuli Parish, Makindye-Kampala.

The study is being conducted by the research department of Clarke International University. The major goal of the study is to assess whether reflective assignments through diaries can increase the development of self-monitoring and self-regulation skills which allow the student to evaluate their own ethical stands and become reflective practitioners.

In Uganda, commercial sex work is considered illegal and therefore women involved in sex trade are not included in the mainstream health plan. This not only limits them from accessing information but also hinders their access to health services considering that they operate under cultural and social constraints. The illegality of the industry makes sex workers vulnerable to exploitation as they are not protected under the law.

Clarke International University (CIU) is currently conducting a study titled: Confidential Enquiry into maternal and child deaths. This is a multi-country study that is being undertaken with the overall headship of the University of Oxford HURAPRIM (Human Resources for Primary Healthcare) project which seeks to design, implement and evaluate interventions to improve the situation.
