USAID committed $2 million over a two-year period. German agreed to match the contribution.

KAMPALA - U.S. Mission Uganda today announced the signing of a cooperation agreement between the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) to design and implement town sanitation plans in four Northern Uganda towns: Oyan, Kamdini, Aduku and Apac. USAID has committed $2 million to the project over a two-year period, while the German Development Cooperation, implemented by GIZ, has agreed to match that contribution.
 
According to WHO/UNICEF estimates, only 34% of urban populations in Uganda have access to proper sanitation facilities. This lack of access to improved sanitation and hygiene hinders the country’s health, education, economic and social development sectors, as well as environmental protection.

President Obama's new U.S. Global Development Policy directs USAID to formulate Country Development Cooperation Strategies (CDCS) that are results-oriented and partner with host countries to focus investments. USAID/Uganda's CDCS implements this policy in the Ugandan context, making considered choices that focus and deepen programs and take closer account of the host country and donor context, while maintaining close coordination with U.S. Government (USG) partners.

This report constitutes the latest, most comprehensive national HIV and AIDS information for Uganda. Information is wide ranging and includes data on HIV-related knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours, patient care, and biomarker indicators. The survey results demonstrate both the strengths and challenges of Uganda’s response. Furthermore, the results demonstrate indisputably that HIV infection remains a significant health problem for Uganda; for this reason, the report should serve as a call to action for all  stakeholders.

The 2011 Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (2011 UDHS) was designed as a follow-up to the 1988/89, 1995, 2000-01, and 2006 Uganda DHS surveys. The main objective of the 2011 UDHS was to obtain current statistical data on the Ugandan population’s demographic characteristics, family planning efforts, maternal mortality, and infant and child  mortality.

The RNMCH sharpened plan is for advocacy, resource mobilisation and prioritisation of high impact interventions to accelerate progress towards achieving MDG 4 and 5 targets. The plan also defines five strategic shifts to avoid business as usual. It places a strong emphasis on strengthening accountability and monitoring mechanisms as well as partnerships for social mobilization, funding and technical assistance. It is not meant to replace the existing Road Map for reduction of maternal mortality and the Child Survival Strategy but to catalyses them.
