Advocacy in Uganda

In Uganda, Living Goods advances the knowledge, resources, and policies to help scale up and sustain community health workers (CHWs) and systems. We work closely with the Ugandan Government to prioritize the support of CHWs in national and district budgets. By providing evidence on the impact of CHWs and results-based financing programs, Living Goods encourages buy-in from both the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Finance, Planning, and Economic Development on community health programs that incorporate results-based financing.

Living Goods is also working closely with the government to advocate for increased data for decision-making to ultimately support and help implement more effective CHW programs. We regularly share data and knowledge on the supervision and monitoring of CHWs as well as other best practices. By demonstrating the effectiveness of CHWs, we aim to increase government, donor, and partner investment in community health.
