Abbas Lugemwa speaks on ‘PentaTr@ining Uganda 2021’


It was a lifetime privilege and honour to host the ‘PentaTr@ining Uganda 2021′ course. This training had originally been planned for 2020, but that schedule got disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, we still received all the maximum support to make the course happen this year. This was a declaration of trust by Penta Foundation in the work we do as Joint Clinical Research Centre – Mbarara, and a demonstration of commitment by Penta to build capacity for excellence in research and paediatric care.
