Principal Investigator: Dr Nazarius Mbona Tumwesigye

Project period: 10/1/2012 – 31/10/2017

Funder: Irish Aid

NOURISH stands for Nutrition and Treatment outcomes: development of a Ugandan-Irish HIV/Nutrition Research Cluster) established a research cluster of academics, clinicians and policy contributors focusing on the complex interactions between nutrition, food security and HIV treatment outcomes to build research and teaching capacity in Irish and Ugandan institutions.

Researchers in health sciences, natural sciences and economics worked together to deliver interventions to determine impact of environmental, health and economic factors on the experience and outcomes of Ugandans living with HIV/AIDs, malnutrition and poverty. The project partners are Trinity College Dublin, Makerere University, Gulu University, Joint Clinical Research Centre, Infectious Diseases Institute with collaboration from University College Dublin and Kings College London.

While the funded period for NOURISH ended in June, 2016, the work on the consortium continues particularly in the supervision of the 5 Ugandan PhD students and the analysis of the large database that was generated. There is also ongoing work on the publication of papers, dissemination and discussion with policy makers/implementing programmes to impact HIV, malnutrition and food insecurity. There is a huge potential to build on and extend the work of NOURISH and the consortium.
