In Uganda, the McGill Field Studies in Africa Program (MFSIA) takes place at the Makere University Field Station located near the Batwa study region. Berrang-Ford lectures on this course each year and Ugandan team members guest lecture, with potential to link research into course programming. Indeed, MFSIA students helped conduct the Uganda research needs assessment. Ugandan participation in our projects reflect discussions that have been ongoing among the Peruvian and Canadian research team members for many years, with Berrang-Ford beginning her research in Uganda in 2001.
