Uganda: Insights for health security strengthening (Oct 2022)

TDDA's final Uganda newsletter reflects on how momentum can be maintained


After almost four years of support from the TDDA programme, Uganda is on a path to building stronger health security systems. We are proud to have been an ally and facilitator in this progress that will help keep communities safer from infectious diseases and other health risks. As we depart, this short document offers some insights into what we see as the most crucial next steps to continue strengthening health security on behalf of all Ugandans. They include:

· How the impact of Uganda’s National Action Plan for Health Security can be maximized

· What more civil society can do to strengthen health security, with ongoing support

· Where next for Community-Based Surveillance

To share our learnings and discuss how our interventions might be supported by others and scaled up in future, we have held a series of meetings with a wide range of government stakeholders, international partners and leaders of civil society organizations (CSOs), as well as FCDO Uganda representatives. Our technical handover meeting in August was followed by a high-level political discussion in mid-September. A final event on 28 September rounded off these sessions, focused on ensuring health security strengthening continues to progress, keeping more people safe.

The TDDA programme closes in November 2022.
