Uganda - Improvement of health services delivery at Mulago hospital and in the city of Kampala (MKCCA) - Project Completion Report
The project was designed within the context of the National Development Plan (NDP) for 2010/11-2014/15 which identifies social and human development as critical components of accelerating economic growth to reduce poverty in Uganda. It focused on the health sector which is geared to reduce morbidity and mortality from the major causes of illness by delivering the Uganda National Minimum Health Care Package (UNMHCP), which is the foundation of health reforms in the country. The Government of Uganda’s (GOU’s) commitments with regard to the UNMHCP are captured in the National Health Policy II (NHP II) for the period 2010-2020 and the Health Sector Strategic and Investment Plan (HSSIP) for 2010/11-2014/15. The project, which aims to support improvements in access to quality and affordable health care services for the population of the Kampala Metropolitan Area1 is therefore consistent with the aims of the UNMHCP, NHP and the HSSIP.
