Common goals of the partnership:

  • That health care practitioners of whatever profession and wherever based should have access to the most reliable and up to date knowledge
  • That healthcare education; research; management and policy making should be supported by best available evidence and information
  • That research and other valuable information generated in Uganda and in Kent; Surrey and Sussex should be made available to the world at large; using the best available technology.
