Uganda - Improvement of Health Services Delivery at Mulago Hospital and in the City of Kampala - ESMP Summary

31-May-2011

The goal for health in Uganda is to reduce morbidity and mortality from the major causes of illness and to reduce the inequalities in the distribution of accessibility to health services in order to promote a healthy and productive life. The Government of Uganda (GOU) intends to achieve this by delivering the Uganda National Minimum Health Care Package (UNMHCP) which builds on earlier development commitments outlined in the Poverty Eradication Action Plan (PEAP) and in the Uganda Joint Assistance Strategy. The GOU’s priorities with regard to the UNMHCP are reflected in the Health Sector Strategic and Investment Plan III (HSSIP III) for 2010/11-2014/2015, and in the National Development Plan II (NDP II 2009/10- 2013/15). Both documents emphasise the need for social and human development as critical components of economic development and poverty reduction. In line with these strategic goals, the objective of the project is to improve access to quality and affordable health care services for the population of the Kampala metropolitan area.
