Regional Health Integration to Enhance Services in Eastern Uganda (USAID RHITES-E)
This $64.8 million, five-year award will help the Government of Uganda expand access and use of high-quality health services for HIV/AIDS; malaria; tuberculosis; nutrition; maternal, newborn, and child health; and more across 23 districts, reaching some 5.7 million people in Eastern Uganda and Karamoja. RHITES-E partners include: The AIDS Support Organization (TASO), Malaria Consortium, Communication for Development Foundation Uganda, and Medic Mobile.
The activity will work with district health officials to strengthen the districts’ health systems as well as community and social structures that will generate stronger demand for services and hold the health systems accountable for equitable access and quality. Key pillars of the activity’s strategy include improving data use, integrating health services, digital health solutions, quality, and a special focus on youth and gender.
