Through HEPI SHSSU, students were trained in scientific writing and Mentored on how to publish research work. This training was conducted on 30th October 2019 at Makerere University College of Health Sciences, conference room.
Many researchers face challenges during their research or studies, and hence have a lot of questions and problems that need to be addressed. These questions face researchers everywhere, but some researchers receive more support than others to tackle them. Many are fortunate enough to have a writing skills course at their institution, or to have a supervisor or mentor to guide them through the publication process. In many lower- and middle-income countries, however, a lack of resources coupled with overcrowding and understaffing means that this vital assistance isn’t available, and researchers struggle to publish and communicate their work.
