Uganda Programme Overview

Covering 30 districts, the ‘Uganda Sanitation Fund’ (USF) enables communities to gain access to basic sanitation and adopt good hygiene practices. The overarching goal of the programme is to help these districts reduce morbidity and mortality rates due to sanitation-related diseases. Led by the Ministry of Health’s Environmental Health Division, District Local Governments serve as Sub-grantees, which are supported by NGOs in some cases.
