You are very welcome to the Uganda National Academy of Sciences (UNAS) website.

For the last 14 years, UNAS has provided free evidence-based and unbiased advice to multiple partners including government, civil society and the private sector. Being a membership organization, we have 62 Fellows who are top scientists in different fields. The Fellows are selected rigorously basing on their significant contribution in various fields of sciences; and they offer leadership to UNAS projects. We mainly conduct our activities through convening and consensus approaches. Our current scope of work includes governance and leadership, climate change, economic development, health, education, vaccine and vaccination, antimicrobial resistance, intimate partnership violence, and biotechnology and biosecurity.

I invite you to partner with us to improve the prosperity and well being of Ugandans through sciences. Please check out some of our publications and reports and get in touch through the contacts provided in this website. Finally, last year UNAS hosted the 10th Annual Meeting of African Science Academies (AMASA 10) on 10th to 12th November 2014 at Serena Lake Victoria Resort here in Kampala, Uganda. Your continued support and collaboration is greatly appreciated.

Prof. Nelson Sewankambo, FUNAS.
