State and USAID: Although the government has been cited for years as making promising progress on a number of fronts, including HIV/AIDS, economic growth, and stabilizing its north, presently Uganda’s development progress faces a number of challenges. Uganda is a key U.S. regional strategic partner through both its involvement in the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and counter-Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) efforts in central Africa. However, current challenges include flawed 2011 parliamentary and presidential elections, continued rapid population growth, challenges to human rights, and inflation. Determined to consolidate and advance Uganda’s development opportunities, the United States transitioned its support from humanitarian assistance to longer-term development programs that provide for reconciliation and security in northern Uganda and improved social and economic well-being throughout the country. Assistance emphasizes fostering Ugandan-managed delivery of services (using direct government assistance and local organizations where feasible) and supporting national development priorities to increase country ownership and build local capacity. U.S. assistance is wide ranging and includes promoting good governance, human rights, and multiparty democracy; professionalizing police and military institutions for better service delivery and adherence to human rights; addressing key health threats including malaria and HIV/AIDS through the Global Health Initiative; supporting the Ugandan government’s plans in agricultural productivity, food security, and nutrition through the Feed the Future (FTF) initiative; and addressing critical development issues such as global climate change and biodiversity.
