IDA Project Appraisal Document on a Proposed Credit & a Proposed Grant from the GFF Trust Fund to the Republic of Uganda
The project development objectives are to: (a) improve utilization of essential health services with a focus on reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health services in target districts; and (b) scale-up birth and death registration services.
The government has revised the 2016-2020 RMNCAH Sharpened Plan in the context of the GFF. The plan developed jointly with key stakeholders has the potential to improve alignment between key financiers, and engage a broad set of stakeholders in supporting a common set of priorities. The plan describes the magnitude of the disease burden from the main RMNCAH-related conditions, highlights gaps in service utilization and coverage for the main RMNCAH interventions, defines the key health systems bottlenecks for delivery of RMNCAH services, and establishes the priority RMNCAH interventions.
