Programs In Uganda

USAID/Uganda CSSA is a five-year project that will support the capacity strengthening of Ugandan CSOs to influence and contribute to improved development outcomes in four thematic areas: (1) health, with particular attention paid to achieving Uganda’s HIV/AIDS’ reduction goals; (2) education, youth, and child development; (3) agriculture and food security; and (4) democracy, rights, and governance. During CCSA’s Inception Phase, EWMI will commission a political economy analysis focused on CSSA’s thematic areas, which will inform EWMI’s joint stakeholder engagement approach and the selection of the particular issues within each thematic area that CSSA support will focus on.
