History

GHN (U) was founded in November 2008 by a network of international researchers and activists. It began as a global health think-tank in the UK, and in 2010 was registered in Uganda as a charitable organization affiliated/member of Triangle Global Health Consortium-US; dedicated to a shared vision and goal: to promote, protect, and preserve the health of all Ugandans through leadership, partnership, innovation and concerted action in primary health care delivery.

GHN (U) has its roots deep in the most vulnerable populations in Uganda, and owes its genesis to the many health researchers and activists who have been concerned by the growing inequities in health over the last 25 years. GHN (U) believes that the best way to achieve health for all is through community-based innovations that enhance local capacity to prevent disease, as well as through the strengthening of local governance to ensure sustainability.
