The Center for Social
Science Research on AIDS

is an NIH-funded project (R24HD056917) to conduct research and training on HIV/AIDS in Uganda. CeSSRA is a collaboration between researchers at Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, Ohio), Makerere University (Kampala, Uganda), the Joint Clinical Research Centre (Kampala, Uganda), and Mbarara University of Science and Technology (Mbarara, Uganda).

 

CeSSRA Mission

The Center for Social Science Research on AIDS (CeSSRA) is a collaboration between researchers at Makerere University (MUK) and the Joint Clinical Research Centre (JCRC) in Kampala, Uganda, at Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) in Mbarara, Uganda, and at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. CeSSRA began in September 2007 through funding from the National Institute of Health (R24HD056917). CeSSRA is housed in the Department of Anthropology at Case Western Reserve University and the Faculty of Social Sciences at Makerere University in Kampala.

 The Center has two complementary missions:

  1. to develop and expand local capacity to undertake social science research on HIV/AIDS in Uganda, and
  2. to promote, foster, and conduct social science research on HIV prevention and treatment.


As such, CeSSRA seeks to strengthen the overall research profile of the Uganda social science research community.
