CNIS has been sending books and journals to the ICC-U resource center and the Department of Surgery Library at Mulago Hospital on a continuing basis since 1996. Uganda and ICC-U are also part of the University of Toronto’s electronic library linkage.

In March 2010 Uganda received $435,424 worth of new medical textbooks, donated by the Sabre Foundation. The books were sorted by ICC-U and distributed to eleven surgical libraries in Kampala, Gulu and Mbarara.
