The Development Research Up-take in Sub-Saharan Africa (DRUSSA) Program is committed to strengthening research uptake capacity and participation in the international development research system in 22 sub-Saharan universities across 12 countries. The goal is to improve accessibility and utilization of locally relevant research evidence to inform national and global development policy and practice. DRUSSA also works towards strengthening the capacity of policy makers in Uganda and Ghana to use research evidence. 

The programme seeks to raise the level of discussion around research evidence at senior ministry levels, equip technical staff with practical skills and support senior civil servants as they begin to encourage a culture of evidence-informed approaches to policy making and policy implementation. The programme is hosted by Uganda National Council for Science and Technology (UNCST) in collaboration with the Economic Policy Research Centre (EPRC), and Civil Service College Uganda.
