MOD Public Health Consultants is Limited Liability Company registered in Uganda. MOD was founded by a team of public health professionals on July 28th, 2015 and is located on Plot 79, Bukoba Road, Masaka City, 135km, south-central of Kampala, Uganda’s capital.
MOD is positioned as a local and low-cost efficient contractor/implementing partner providing public health solutions to the rapidly emerging public health market. MOD uses a Knowledge Translation Thesis and Application (KNOTSA) model to close the knowledge Translation “The DO-KNOW” gap in public health to improve access to Universal Health Care (UHC) coverage.
Approximately 1.6 million people from rural communities of Africa die from simple and preventable illnesses such Malaria, Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS. Unacceptably, 50% of children under five still die of pneumonia, diarrhea, measles (WHO, 2019). These can be prevented with access to appropriate and affordable; Medicines, Vaccines and public health innovations.
However, in most developing countries, the latest effective and affordable social and healthcare innovations are not reaching those who need them most. Our findings show a big-time lag between discovery and application of medical, public health and social innovations of 5-10 years. Without access to timely universal health care Coverage (UHC), countries like Uganda will continue to be susceptible to emerging public health threats. COVID-19 has just proved this phenomenon.
MOD is positioned to work with Public health researchers, medical, pharmaceutical and technological innovators globally to source, translate, synthesis and deliver emerging public health and medical innovations and solutions to vulnerable population and underserved communities using a KNOTSA model.
