The Uganda Initiative for Integrated Management of Non-Communicable Diseases (UINCD) is a research organization that works to find better ways to address non-communicable diseases (NCDs). UINCD aims at building capacity in the realms of prevention, care, training, and research to enable the provision of effective and integrated care along the NCDs management spectrum. It has a strong network of subnational, national and international partners through which it undertakes a range of collaborations. UINCD is currently advancing its commitment to advancing the NCD agenda through the implementation of various programs.
To build capacity in the realms of prevention, care, training, and research to enable the provision of effective and integrated care along the NCD management spectrum.
The Uganda Initiative for Integrated Management of Non-Communicable Diseases (UINCD) is a research partnership that is working to find better ways to address chronic diseases. From prevention to disease management, health services and healthcare worker training are often fragmented in their approach to chronic, non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
We believe that addressing NCDs, which share common risk factors and socioeconomic determinants of health, will require a shift away from disease-specific approaches and towards integrated health service delivery platforms. We are developing innovative models of training healthcare workers and caring for patients and communities- all focused on NCD integration.

WHO WE ARE
UINCD came together in 2013 as a group of doctors, researchers, and government officials representing the Uganda Ministry of Health, Makerere University College of Health Sciences, and Mulago National Referral Hospital, joined by colleagues from Yale School of Medicine. Our work was catalyzed in 2013 by an Innovation Award and administrative support from the Yale Global Health Leadership Institute. UINCD was officially registered as a limited liability corporation in Uganda on February 25, 2014.
We are collaborating with many stakeholder groups in Uganda to broaden the scope and impact of our work. If you are interested in collaborating with us, please contact us using the form at the bottom of this page.
We aim to disseminate our work widely through academic journals, blogs, social media, and traditional media outlets. Here is a selection of our writing. Check back often- there is always more on the way!
