Must read

The United States government has injected Shs3.8 trillion into various sectors of the country in 2023, the US report to the people of Uganda indicates.

The annual US Report to Uganda chronicles the United States’ enduring partnership with the Ugandan people and joint efforts in different sectors. 

The report shows that 1.1 million Ugandans benefitted from US food security programming. The U.S. added $20 million in private sector investment.

Released by Ambassador William Popp, the report indicates that PEPFAR has celebrated 20 years of preventing 600,000 HIV-related deaths and 500,000 HIV infections, including 230,000 babies born HIV-free.

The US and Uganda partnership helped to end Uganda’s 3rd largest Ebola outbreak. The U.S. supported 10+ regional referral hospitals—Kiruddu, Mulago Women’s, Naguru, Kawempe, Mubende, Kawempe, Kayunga, Lira, Kawolo, and Butabika—to transition to electronic medical records.

“With U.S. funding, 2.5 million mosquito nets were distributed and 5 million malaria testing and treatment kits were provided to health facilities. 2.1 million children and pregnant women benefited from U.S.-supported nutrition programmes,” the report indicates.

Ambassador Popp said the United States has a longstanding partnership with the Ugandan people. US assistance, implemented through local and international non-governmental and civil society partners, directly benefits Ugandans from all backgrounds and regions of the country.

“Millions are living healthier, learning better, earning more, and advocating for their civic and human rights thanks to our strong partnership. For more than six decades, the U.S.-Uganda partnership has resulted in the eradication of deadly diseases, saved lives, reduced poverty, advanced democratic values, prevented and resolved conflicts, promoted peace and inclusive citizen responsive governance, and promoted resilience in communities and small businesses,” he said.
