Uganda National Academy Of Sciences President Speaks About Anti-Gay Law

Science Magazine: Ugandan academy president speaks out on anti-gay law
“…In the days before [Uganda President Yoweri] Museveni signed the [anti-gay] bill, the Uganda National Academy of Sciences (UNAS) avoided being drawn into the controversy by declining a request from the government to conduct a rushed review of the scientific evidence about the causes of homosexuality. Instead, it will team up with the Academy of Science of South Africa for an in-depth study expected to be completed next year, says UNAS President Nelson Sewankambo. … Sewankambo, an internal medicine specialist and head of Makerere University College of Health Sciences who has spent years strengthening science capacity in Africa, spoke with ScienceInsider on the sidelines of a U.S. National Academy of Sciences meeting…” (Stone, 8/12).
