Karolinska Institutet and Makerere University in Uganda have been working together for over 20 years. In 2021 they established a Centre based on their strong partnership to bring people together, recognize their health challenges and mobilize actions towards well-being. Today the Centre provides tools, resources and training programs for researchers, students, professionals and policy makers globally.

Showcasing the Center's continuous development, their communication team has developed a new website that has a more user-friendly design, improved accessibility, search optimisation, social media integration, and simple navigation to allow target audience to find exactly what they need.
