Hello GPP Family ,

It is a pleasure joining you in this interaction!

Meet Mathias a community liaison officer with Uganda Virus Research Institute-International Aids Vaccine Initiative(UVRI-IAVI HIV Vaccine Program-Uganda).The Program is into phase 1 Vaccine trials at the site and field epidemiological studies in fishing communities in and along L.Victoria. These fishing communities are hard to reach with very limited access to health services.

I am at the forefront of all the community engagement activities that are research related ,out-reaches and collaborative efforts with service providers. This calls for many travels across waters with our Program boat.

Empowering me with GPP knowledge will take me an extra mile in cementing partnerships between researchers and stakeholders. I am happy having you as on-line classmates.

Looking forward to further interaction!
