EXPLORING PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES TO ACHIEVE UNIVERSAL HEALTH ACCESS

2016 UGANDA PRIVATE SECTOR ASSESSMENT IN HEALTH

 

vThe Ministry of Health (MoH), with support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the World Bank Group’s Health in Africa Initiative (HIA) and the Global Finance Facility (GFF), commissioned an assessment of the private health sector in Uganda (PSA). The USAID/Uganda Private Health Support Program assisted the MoH to carry out the PSA. The PSA aims to generate and consolidate data on private sector activities into a single document to better understand the relevance of the private sector in the Ugandan health system. An appreciation of the private health sector’s size and scope will guide MoH policy and planning and donor programming to better harness all resources – public and private alike – to help Uganda achieve Universal Health Coverage (UHC).
The objectives of the assessment are:
 To document and develop a comprehensive understanding of private sector activities throughout the health system in Uganda
 To identify potential areas for the Ugandan private health sector to contribute to MoH’s goal and objectives as outlined in Health Sector Development Plan (HSDP) 2015/16-2019/20.
 To propose a road map to harness private sector potential to address a select number of strategic health service areas and/or systems gaps as outlined in the MoH Public-Private-Partnership Policy and Strategy.

CONSOLIDATED GUIDELINES FOR PREVENTION AND TREATMENT OF HIV IN UGANDA- Ministry of health Uganda

The Government of Uganda promotes a combination of interventions to manage a generalized HIV epidemic in the country. Over the past ten years, the AIDS Control Program has integrated antiretroviral therapy (ART) into the comprehensive response to HIV prevention, care and support.

The 2016 version of the “Consolidated Guidelines for Prevention and Treatment of HIV in Uganda” now expands the HIV “test and treat” policy to all adolescents and adults diagnosed with HIV. In compliance with WHO recommendation, we have removed all limitations on eligibility for ART among all people living with HIV: all populations and age groups are now eligible for treatment. This is a significant policy change aimed at consolidating the gains made in the past decades to reverse AIDS as a public health problem in Uganda. In addition, these guidelines do recommend HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis for HIV-uninfected persons at substantial risk of HIV acquisition.
