In January 2016 Cochrane SA hosted a GRADE workshop in Kampala, Uganda. The aim of the workshop was to develop the participant's capacity to apply GRADE in research synthesis.
The participants comprised Cochrane authors from Uganda and other African countries. A total of 19 participants attended. The training was facilitated by Dr Jamlick Karumbi (Ministry of Health, Kenya), Dr Obuku Ekwaro (Makerere University, Uganda) and Dr Newton Opiyo (Cochrane Editorial Unit, UK).
