Description

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

 

For every child, a fair chance

Uganda is one of the over 190 countries and territories around the world where we work to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease, and discrimination place in a child’s path. Together with the Government of Uganda and partners we work towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals, the objectives of the Uganda National Development Plan, and the planned outcomes of the United Nations Development Assistance Framework.

Background

In 2013, the Ministry of Health embarked on taking a common country approach towards accelerating the attainment and sustaining the progress achieved towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) targets, through development of national RMNCAH Sharpened Plan (A Promise Renewed).

The Ministry of Health Uganda launched the RMNCAH Sharpened plan in September 2013 which laid the foundation for RMNCAH investment case for Uganda in 2016. The sharpened plan and investment case focuses on scaling up high impact interventions through the five strategic shifts as follows:

  1. Emphasizing evidence-based high-impact solutions;
  2. Increasing access for high-burden populations;
  3. Geographical focusing/sequencing;

  5. Ensuring mutual accountability for RMNCAH outcomes.

Health Development Partners consider the review of RMNCAH sharpened plan, an important task which will inform partners of key bottlenecks and support prioritization at national and sub-national level.
