UCMB-USAID ACHAP-Afya Project
The Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau (UCMB), the Health Department of the Uganda Episcopal Conference (UEC) in partnership with the Africa Christian Health Associations Platform (ACHAP)—an advocacy and network platform of over 40 Christian Health Associations (CHAs) and Church Health Networks in Sub-Saharan Africa, with support from USAID, are implementing a Community Health Networks project—ACHAP Afya—in the West Nile Districts of Arua and Nebbi.
The goal of the project is to address community health interventions—that will increase the demand and utilization of maternal, and child health (MCH), Nutrition, Water & Sanitation Hygiene (WASH) and voluntary family planning and reproductive health (FP/RH) interventions in the region through expanding demand for and availability of community health services by engaging and leveraging the expertise of locally established organizations and influential community resource persons that can help strengthen linkage and the reach of the healthcare system.
The ACHAP Afya – UCMB Community Health Network Project will be implemented to support Government of Uganda development efforts of reducing key community drivers of child and maternal morbidity and mortality in high burden regions of Uganda.
