Few industries have the power to transform a country in the way that extraction does.  The wealth that lies beneath our feet can power industries the world over and unlock massive amounts of capital.  In the United States, the gold and oil rushes of the 19th century still resonate today.  And just as in every country that has experienced that sort of dynamic, those effects have been positive and negative, and utterly transformative in ways that are almost beyond understanding.  As Uganda prepares to deepen its development in the oil and gas sector and other extractives industries, it faces great opportunity and profound responsibility.

As educators, you all know how critical reading skills are to establishing the foundations for successful learning and supporting development. Those skills enable the wonder and joy that can come through education, and they are best acquired at an early age. Albert Einstein made the point in a beautiful expression as follows: “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”  As teachers, educators, administrators and policy makers, we owe it to our young learners to help them acquire the spark that unleashes their creative spirits and talents.

On behalf of the U.S. government and Ambassador Malac, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Government of Uganda, and specifically the Ministry of Health and local government, for being here today.  I am honoured to join you in celebrating USAID’s renewal of partnerships in support for healthy outcomes in the Lango region.  Together, we are stronger in our commitment to address challenges in the Lango sub-region and put forth coordinated solutions to improve Lango’s health systems. Though we are here to celebrate this launch, I also want to express our condolences regarding the losses of esteemed leaders in Lira mentioned earlier.

USAID/Uganda’s Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS) 2016 – 2021 aims to work towards ensuring that “Uganda’s systems are accelerating inclusive education, health and economic outcomes.” Six integrated projects are planned, to contribute to the achievement of this goal. They are: i)Resilience Project, ii) Demographic Drivers Project, iii) Market Systems Project, iv) Natural ResourcesManagement Systems Project, v) Health Systems Project, and vi) Governance and Citizen Participation Systems Project. The respective projects are elaborated in interrelated Project Appraisal Documents (PADs). For these projects to be effectively implemented, USAID/Uganda recognizes that it is important to integrate gender equality and inclusion of vulnerable groups. USAID therefore commissioned this gender and social inclusion analysis, to identify key gender and inclusive development issues and constraints that need to be addressed within its portfolio and to recommend how USAID/Uganda can achieve greater inclusive development in its programs.
