Increasing access to healthcare services in the Karamoja sub-region, Uganda

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% to 5.3%*.

In 2010, the USAID Strengthening Uganda’s Systems for Treating AIDS Nationally (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.
