Building Strong Communities

Despite facing significant economic challenges, Uganda has made great strides to improve the health and well-being of its people. Abt Global-led projects have:

  • Linked community groups with agricultural markets to promote food security and increase economic opportunities.
  • Studied HIV-positive Ugandans’ treatment-seeking behavior.
  • Provided antenatal and delivery services to rural mothers.
  • Supported local governance and advocacy structures.
  • Protected millions of people from malaria, significantly reducing the disease’s prevalence.
