TORCH (Tororo Community Health)

The TORCH (Tororo Community Health) project was a 12-Year research and training collaborative project between Makerere University (through the CHDC-Tororo District), the University of Copenhagen (through the institute of Anthropology), and the University of Aarhus, Denmark (with the Department of Epidemiology and Social Medicine).  This project ended in 2007.  TORCH has given full support to 5 PhD students, 19 Masters Degree students and a number of academic/applied research related projects by Danish and Ugandan students. It was part of the ENRECA (Programme for Enhancement of Research Capacity) Health Network and was funded by DANIDA's ENRECA project.
