This reporting period marks the end of the five-year strategic plan (2006-2011). During this period, UNHCO has been empowering health consumers and users to voice their
concerns and participate in creating a sustainable health care delivery system. Special emphasis was put
on the poor and most vulnerable at community level, with information to facilitate knowledge and demand
for health rights and responsibilities, and monitor accountability.

This report highlights the key interventions and the results thereof under the different programmes implemented by UNHCO. The programmes are now implemented in 20 districts in different regions across the country. Advocacy issues pursued at district level include: consumer participation, poor attitude of health workers, medicine stock-outs, poor quality of service provision and client satisfaction to mention but a few. At National level, UNHCO has secured civil society representation at key policy committees and working groups.
UNHCO has played a major role in the development of the Health Sector Strategic Investment Plan, National Health Policy III, Public-Private Partnership for Health,
and the National Health Insurance Policy. UNHCO also continues to provide Civil Society Coordination through it leadership functions in the Voices for Health Rights and
Maternal Health Coalitions.
UNHCO is deeply involved in promoting the Right to Health
and will continuously advocate for the right of health consumers to quality and accessible services for improved quality of life of Ugandans.
We are grateful for our partners in the districts and at national
level with whom we work tirelessly toward the realisation
of the Right to Health in Uganda.
We offer deep appreciation to our donors: Catholic Organisation for Relief and Development Aid, Open Society Foundations, Swedish International Development Agency,
Transparency and Accountability Program, World Bank, and others. Your continued support allows critical participation of health consumers in the affairs of their health.
