AMBSO is a well-established training institution with sophisticated facilities to support learning since its inception in 2017. Endowed with experienced capacities for both medical and non-medical personnel, we have been able to realise a firmer foundation in skilling health care professionals in all aspects of training opportunities sufficing. Local and internal technical competencies well established in institution have enormously contributed to promoting knowledge sharing and capacity lifting.
The AMBSO trainings have been designed to support capacity building in both service delivery and research. Major training capacities are tailored to HIV prevention, care and treatment among health care providers; and training of research staff base to promote institutional capacity to conduct quality, professional and ethical community-based and clinical research.
In 2017, the institution was accredited by the Ugandan Ministry of Health to offer specialized skills trainings in emergency resuscitation tailored for SMC providers across the country, with the expected deliverable of building knowledge and skills to handle SMC emergencies and complications in case they occur. Both CDC and USAID partners have been trained across the country.
Other trainings include community-based capacity building purposed to establish resilient community structures in addressing gender-based violence and drug use in selected communities and among schools. In order to achieve community inclusion of AMBSO services, community activists (CAs)/ community intervention partners (CIPs), school advocacy prevention partners (SAPCs), community local leaders and the police have been trained.
