Enroll as a Student

Your professional skills and influence can be used to ensure better access and services for pregnant mothers. The Save the Mothers Program is a specially designed program during which you can continue your profession by taking modular courses towards a Master of Public Health Leadership (MPHL) degree. You can work and study at the same time!


Modules are spaced throughout the year. Each module lasts for three intensive weeks (full-time). Studies focus on the causes and prevention of maternal mortality from various professional perspectives. You will be equipped with leadership skills and hands-on experience to influence and reduce—through your own professional sphere of influence—the tragedy of mothers dying from pregnancy-related complications. Faculty include both international and local experts in the fields of leadership, communication and advocacy, public health and much more.


The Save the Mothers program is offered at the beautiful campus of Uganda Christian University, near Mukono, Uganda. Sitting on 85-acres of lush Ugandan countryside, this university has developed into one of the most respected universities in East Africa. Only 30 minutes out of Kampala on the Jinja Road, the university has housing facilities and sporting opportunities. STM students reside and study in a new building constructed in 2008, Mirembe Hall, which is among UCU’s showcase buildings.
