Narrative description of project:
Uganda has registered very slow progress towards attainment of the MDG targets of reducing maternal and child mortality, and combating HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases (MDG4, 5 and 6). The UK will provide £ 38 million over a three-year period (2013/14 – 2015/16) to provide essential medicines, health supplies and basic equipment to treat the main causes of maternal and child mortality and morbidity to the public and PNFP sector throughout the country.

DFID Uganda seeks expert consultancy services through PEAKS to develop the strategic and appraisal cases to increase availability of essential medicines, health supplies and equipment in Uganda.

This program will save the lives of an estimated 17,125 children under 5 years and 2,254 women. Under the preferred Option, the analysis shows a cost of £ 190 per DALY saved.
