Jauhara Nanyondo

Makerere University Walter Reed Program (MUWRP) - 2010 Fellow

Jauhara works and lives in Kampala, Uganda. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Adult and Community Education, and has five years working experience in public health. She was part of the Makerere University Walter Reed Project (MUWRP) team that successfully recruited and retained over 2000 cohort participants. She worked on the program’s community outreach department where she was charged with mobilization and sensitization of different stakeholders including, community leaders, health professionals, media and community advisory boards (CABs) in relation to HIV vaccine research. Previously, Jauhara worked with Plan Uganda and the Makerere University Case Western University as a community mobilization volunteer and a home visitor. She has reached diverse communities during efforts to build HIV vaccine literacy and drafted CAB by-laws to streamline operations of the CAB in Uganda.

Fellowship Focus: Jauhara worked to develop a standard HIV prevention research training guide for the media in Uganda. The guide helped streamline the content and scope of such training. In Uganda, there have been efforts to build media capacity to report effectively on new HIV prevention research, but the content and scope of such workshops have been limited. The media is a strong advocacy tool, and she strongly believes that with standard training, an informed community base of advocates for HIV vaccine research and other new HIV prevention technologies can be built in Uganda.
