Achieving the MDGs in Uganda: The Contribution of Family Planning
Cover Image

Author(s): Health Policy Project

Primary Language: English

Date: 7/1/2014

Abstract:

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)—a set of eight important, time-bound goals ranging from reducing poverty in developing countries to providing universal primary education—represent a blueprint for global development agreed to by member states of the United Nations and international development institutions.
Uganda has made significant progress in reducing maternal and child mortality, but areas such as improved sanitation coverage, malaria, and universal primary education have seen less improvement. This analysis by the USAID-funded Health Policy Project shows how one strategy— reducing the unmet need for family planning (FP) in line with Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) goals—can make achieving and sustaining the MDGs more affordable in Uganda, and directly contribute to further reducing child mortality and improving maternal health.
