Uganda developed the Reproductive Maternal Neonatal Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) Sharpened Plan in 2013 to enable collective action towards key intervention areas for achieving equitable accelerated improvements in maternal, newborn and child mortality rates in Uganda.
The government and development partners are implementing this Plan through several programs and projects including the Uganda Reproductive, Maternal and Child Health Services Improvement Project (URMCHIP). This project is jointly financed by the Ministry of Health (MoH), the World Bank, the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), and the Global Financing Facility.
The development objectives of the Uganda Reproductive, Maternal, and Child Health Services Improvement Project are to:
(a) improve utilization of essential health services with a focus on reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health services in target districts;
(b) scale-up birth and death registration services
The project comprises four components;
- Results Based Financing (RBF) for primary health care services – with the objective to scale up and institutionalize RBF focusing on Reproductive Maternal Neonatal Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCAH) services
- Strengthen institutional capacity to deliver RMNCAH services
- Strengthen institutional capacity for civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS) and scale-up birth and death registration (BDR) services.
It consists of the following sub-components:
- strengthen institutional capacity to deliver BDR services
- Scale-up BDR services
- Enhance the institutional capacity for the management of project-supported activities.
