This brief by Uganda’s National Planning Authority describes how Uganda and its people could benefit from the demographic dividend, based on results from DemDiv, a new modeling tool developed by the USAID-funded Health Policy Project. DemDiv shows that a combined scenario of investments in family planning, education, and economic policies would provide the strongest benefits in terms of health, investment, employment, and GDP per capita. Specific policy recommendations for the three sectors are included.
