It could have happened anywhere. I knew crime having lived in Chicago, Washington, D.C., and New Haven. But I thought I was going to be ready for this moment in Kampala. As part of my characteristic risk-calculating analysis, I worked out what I thought would be a logical plan to diffuse an unexpected situation exactly like this months before I moved to Uganda to conduct research. I would calmly give the perpetrator a strategic amount of money, and then offer to connect him with a local organiza...

Contact investigation remains an essential component of tuberculosis (TB) control, yet missed opportunities to trace, medically examine, and treat close contacts of newly diagnosed index TB cases persist. We report a new case of active TB in a 21 year-old woman who was a household contact of a known TB index case in Kampala, Uganda. She was identified during a house-to-house TB case finding survey using chronic cough (≥2 weeks). This case study re-emphasizes two important public health issues in...

Background HIV testing is a key component of prevention and an entry point into HIV/AIDS treatment and care however, coverage and access to testing remains low in Uganda. Home-Based HIV Counseling and Testing (HBHCT) has potential to increase access and early identification of unknown HIV/AIDS disease. This study investigated the level of acceptance of Home-Based HIV Counseling and Testing (HBHCT), the HIV sero-prevalence and the factors associated with acceptance of HBHCT in an urban setting.

The triumvirate of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria have dominated our public health focus in the developing world. Having claimed millions of lives, these infectious diseases have prompted a large-scale response. Concomitant with these efforts has been a burgeoning bioethics literature examining global health and distributive justice. A scholarly wasteland only a decade ago, there is now a growing and rich literature that aims to unpack our moral obligations when it comes to diseases that af...

In this article, we discuss the growth of international service learning in undergraduate medical education and tie it to a burgeoning interest among students and educators in global health justice. The process of experience, reflection, and action is the cornerstone of cultivating a sense of social justice among students. Finally, we examine both risks and benefits to international service learning for medical students. We define “service learning,” distinguish it from service and volunteerism,...

DRIVEN BY THE RECENT SEQUENCING OF THE HUMAN GEnome, the field of genetics has evolved to include the study of interindividual genomic variation. This emerging discipline focuses on the 0.1% of our genome that makes each individual genetically unique. Understanding genomic variation may improve the prediction of disease susceptibility, prognosis, and response to drug therapy, although a number of challenges will need to be addressed before this approach can be integrated into standard clinical p...
