ARCAD Data Repository

Our Data Repository provides information from hundreds of our past projects that can be useful for research, training, policy and action.

Our Rationale design

ARCAD was designed as a mechanism to support, facilitate, link, and provide a focus for research on aging and dementia for Ugandans as they age, in a way that will ensure both excellence and relevance.

Our Training program

We offer a unique accredited Masters of Science in Public Health Research (MScPHR) in collaboration with the Nelson Mandela African Institution for Science and Technology. We have a dedicated Training Center for the program in Bagamoyo, Tanzania.

The aims of the ARCAD are,
