Shadow reporting was initiated to improve the capacity of civil society organizations (CSOs) to meaningfully engage with government and development partners on health policy processes within the International Health Partnerships (IHP+) framework in Uganda and contribute to efficiency and effectiveness in health service delivery. This report picks on the previous Shadow Report of 2012 and the Annual Health Sector Performance Reports 2012 and 2013 with particular emphasis on the HIV&AIDS, TB & Malaria; Human Resources for Health; Essential Medicines and Health Supplies; Non Communicable Diseases; Sexual and Reproductive health; and Health Financing indicators in the HSSP III 2010.
The Government of Uganda signed a country compact under the International Health Partnership agreement in 2009 for the implementation of the HSSIP with Development partners and Civil Society Organizations. The compact outlines commitment by the government and donors to improving health service delivery in the country as well as the role of CSOs to independently monitor performance of the Health Sector. Against this background, human rights focused CSOs under the auspices of the Action Group for Health, Human Rights and HIV&AIDS (AGHA) have for the fourth year running compiled annual Shadow Reports on the performance of the health sector.
