The USAID Uganda Health Systems Strengthening (UHSS) Activity is a five-year activity (October 15, 2019, to October 15, 2024), implemented by THE Palladium Group. The goal of the UHSS Activity is to improve the performance of Uganda’s health systems in public and private health sectors at national, sub national and community levels through providing tailored and innovative technical assistance (TA).

  • Improved leadership and accountability for results at each level of the health sector.

The UHSS Activity interventions are expected to be aligned to the Government of Uganda (GoU)’s Health Sector Development Plan II – 2020/21-2024/25 and USAID’s global Vision for Health Systems Strengthening (HSS). The overall technical strategy is to engage key stakeholders, empower them through increased capacity, and promote more efficient and equitable health systems. UHSS supports an enabling policy environment and generates evidence to inform planning, budgeting, financial management, and performance monitoring. The activity particularly focuses on strengthening governance, health financing, health workforce, and community systems at all levels of the health system.
