An article co-authored by Master of Science in Global Health (MSGH) alumna Ainur Kagarmanova (2020) along with several Eck Institute for Global Health (EIGH) faculty affiliates has been published in BMC Palliative Care. The article, "Palliative care in Uganda: quantitative descriptive study of key palliative care indicators 2018-2020," aims to provide "an overview of the availability of palliative care services in the country and the challenges and gaps in Uganda prior to the global COVID-19 pandemic."

The publication was a result of Kagarmanova's MSGH Capstone Field Research project and a collaboration with the Palliative Care Association of Uganda (PCAU), the Ministry of Health of Uganda, Uganda Martyrs University, the Hospice Foundation, and the University of Notre Dame. The EIGH faculty affiliates listed as co-authors include Matthew Sisk, Associate Professor of the Practice at the Lucy Institute for Data & Society, Tom Marentette, IT Solutions Architect & Manager at Notre Dame Studios, and Lacey Ahern, Adjunct Assistant Professor of the Practice at the Eck Institute for Global Health and Program Director at Global Partners in Care
