East African/allAfrica.com Examines Health Funding Gaps in Uganda

April 13, 2010

The East African/allAfrica.com examines how funding gaps in Uganda are affecting the country's health services despite a move by the government to triple "the health budget from Ush240 billion ($120 million) to Ush734.67 billion ($367.33 million)," between 2005 and 2009. The article details several factors that may be contributing to the funding shortfall, including a lack of oversight over how donor funds are used. The piece notes, "the biggest donor to the health sector in Uganda, the President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief for instance spent [close to] $290 million last year on projects" (Nakkazi, 4/12).
