Nelson Sewankambo

Makerere University College of Health Sciences
Professor Emeritus and former Dean
Nelson Sewankambo MBChB, MSc, M.MED, FRCP, LLD (HC) is Professor Emeritus and former Dean of Makerere University Medical School as well as past principal of Makerere University College of Health Sciences in Uganda. His career in global health was ushered in by the urgent need to address the nationally devastating AIDS epidemic from 1981/82 to date. His global research team identified the existence of HIV/AIDS in Uganda in the early 1980s (Lancet, Serwadda, et al. 1985). With 35+ global health partnerships, Dr. Sewankambo has facilitated the development of and participated in many global health collaborations involving education, research, and service delivery between Makerere University and other institutions in high- and low- or middle-income countries. He is co-author of one of the most frequently cited definitions of global health (Koplan, J. P. et al. 2009) and has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to improving equity in global health partnerships.
