Mr. Moses Tetui is a research fellow at the department of health policy planning and management at the Makerere University School of Public Health. Moses has an implementation science and systems research experience that spans over 8 years. In addition to his other research responsibilities, he is currently in the last semester of his PhD studies registered at Umea University, Sweden. His research focus is in building health systems that are responsive to the needs of the vulnerable poor in resource-limited settings. He is an expert in Qualitative and Participatory action research (PAR) practice aimed at improving health systems research, practice and management. He is currently a co-principal investigator of the PERFORM2 Scale project aimed at designing a scale up strategy for a health management strengthening intervention at district level in Uganda.
He has worked several projects both as a team member but also in management positions. He therefore carries with him great project coordination skills and a rich experience in undertaking robust research. These include the recently concluded MANIFEST project which aimed at increasing access to quality maternal and neonatal services in rural parts of Uganda using a PAR approach in order to increase chances of sustainability (http://tandfonline.com/toc/zgha20/10/sup4?nav=tocList). The others include the Africa Hub project (http://www.africahub.org ) which comprised of seven African Schools of Public Health in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda. The hub was dedicated to enhancing the leadership and capacity of public health institutions in health systems research. Under this, he contributed to the design of a short course in health systems research among other achievements.
He has also been involved in the knowledge translation network which worked across several Africa countries to make research findings more relevant to its end users (http://ktnetafrica.net). He has been involved in several other maternal and neonatal projects within and without Uganda. Lastly but not least, Moses offers academic support to the Makerere University School of Public health and more recently to the Epidemiology and Global Health unit, Umea University.
Activities undertaken include; lecturing both post and under graduate students, reviewing project concepts and proposals, supervising student research projects, and examining students among others.
