Uganda has been at the forefront of developing and implementing innovative public health strategies, enabling it to make significant strides in improving the health of its citizens. Since 2013, Seed has collaborated with the Government of Uganda and our in-country partners to train physicians, nurses, and midwives in order to improve access to high-quality care. 

Despite recent gains, health workforce shortages remain a key bottleneck to provision of appropriate health services in the country. In order to achieve Universal Health Coverage in Uganda and save lives, we need to make essential investments in strengthening human resources for health. 

Based on the needs of Ugandan communities and the government’s health priorities, Seed supports two critical areas in the country:
