The faculty of health sciences published more research papers and journals than any other faculty at high rising Victoria University in Uganda. The Vice Chancellor of Victoria University Dr. Khrisna N. Sharma said in the academic year 2018, 35 publications were released from the University.
“The highest number of publications came from the faculty of health sciences followed by faculty of Business and Management, Humanities and Social Science and Science and Technology,” the vice chancellor said in interview with Health News Uganda.
Some of the topics of focus during research and eventual publication of research findings including nutrition - specifically nutrition and dietetics among bank employees. Some students from the faculty of health sciences looked at some epidomological issues related to Uganda
Dr. Sharma said Victoria University will be organizing a public speech where students will come and present these research findings. “There has always been a gap between the researchers and the public who are the consumers of these publications. The basic aim of a publication is to make research finding available to people,”
“By writing in our academic style, we are making it available for the academicians but how about the real people, policy makers - the real users of this information. So we are going to organize a public lecture where our students will simplify their research and tell people what they found out. That will be our next project.
