Increasing Access to Healthcare Services in the Karamoja Sub-region, Uganda

This brief provides an overview of USAID/SUSTAIN's work in Karamoja in HIV prevention, care and treatment, laboratory services and human resources for health. Karamoja, in northeastern Uganda, is considered by many a "hard to reach" and "hard to live in" sub-region. The HIV prevalence rate in Karamoja has risen in the last decade from 3.5 percent to 5.3 percent. In 2010, the USAID/SUSTAIN project, working closely with the Ministry of Health, started implementing interventions to improve public healthcare systems to provide quality HIV prevention, care and treatment services in seven districts of the sub-region.
