Uganda

ASSIST is supporting the Ministry of Health to strengthen the health system and improve family health care and HIV prevention and care within 15 districts of Northern Uganda focusing on mother, newborn and child health; family planning; nutrition services; and treatment of tuberculosis and malaria. Providing above-site technical supports to an additional 39 districts in other regions of Uganda, the project aims to enable district teams, implementing partners, and facilities to: (1) achieve UNAIDS 90-90-90 targets; (2) keep mother-to-child transmission of HIV below 5%; (3) implement the DREAMS initiative for HIV prevention among adolescent girls and young women; (4) improve the quality of malaria, tuberculosis, and voluntary medical male circumcision services; and (5) strengthen the health system. These efforts are generating new knowledge to improve service delivery and better health outcomes.
