The MRC/UVRI is an internationally recognized center of excellence for research on HIV infection, AIDS and related diseases. It contributes knowledge on the evolving epidemic, the evaluation of innovative health care options, treatment and prevention, and the development of health policy and practice in Africa and globally. In the past, the Institute has contributed to the multi-disciplinary HIV research achievements which led to valuable insights into the course of the epidemic and has made major contributions to the development of new HIV prevention strategies and better care. These contributions helped to inform policy and practice of HIV/AIDS control in Uganda and elsewhere in Africa.
Current research thematic areas focus on: the changing HIV/AIDS epidemic (ROCHAE); endemic, neglected, emerging and re-emerging infections (ENERI); and understanding the risk factors and control of NCDs (STOP-NCD). The ROCHAE delivers research across different aspects of the HIV epidemic to understand and to contribute to current HIV epidemiology.

The publications page has journal articles, reports, policy briefs and presentations of the Institute.
