Dr. Elizabeth Kemigisha successfully defended her PhD in Corona era
PhD student from Uganda Ms Elizabeth Kemigisha successfully defended her PhD at Ghent University at the Faculty of Medicine and Health sciences.
Elizabeth Kemigisha is a paediatrician and lecturer at Mbarara University of Science and Technology (South Western Uganda).
Her defense was planned on March 12th, one day later Belgium went in lockdown due to the COVID-19 virus, so at the defense only the supervisors and jurymembers could be present, so her public defense was without audience, except for her mum who came especially for her defense to Belgium.
The PhD of Elizabeth was based on the project she has been working on since 2015 funded by VLIR UOS entitled "Mitigating adverse sexual and reproductive health outcomes through a comprehensive primary school sexuality education program in South Western Uganda".
The title of her thesis is "Comprehensive Sexuality Education for Young Adolescents in Uganda: Obstacles, Challenges and Opportunities in the Development, Implementation and Evaluation of a Primary School - Based Program" and her supervisors are Prof. Dr. Kristien Michielsen and Dr. Viola Nilah Nyakato.
