By December 2019 Uganda NCD Alliance has: 1. Established NCD desks at local health clinics and have the capacity to collect data and provide screenings and NCD information to local citizens 2. Improved the coordinating structure of the branches and their ability to do outreaches 3. Used collected data to influence national policy makers
Primary target group: • At least 30.000 members of the general community; Male and females, adult and young people. They will benefit from screening and education on risk factors provided by the NCDs desks and at the outreaches. During the outreaches we will especially target women, youth and poor people from the rural areas due to their socio-economic vulnerability of exclusion to resources and services • 80 Health workers and leaders trained in NCDs screening and education and data collection • 50 Members of parliament to be influenced through the advocacy effort • 60 volunteers at the branches, who will improve their ability to conduct outreaches and provide information about NCDs • 10 Branch leaders, who will be trained as NCD and data collection trainers Secondary target group • 20 stakeholders identified in the stakeholder analysis, targeted through the advocacy efforts • 5 Board members of UNCDA that will receive training, but also assist in the outreaches, trainings and advocacy • Ministry of health to assist with the NCD desks and as a target for advocacy
This intervention will provide public health clinics with the ability to do screenings, inform about NCD prevention and risk factors and provide quality data. Moreover, it will improve the capacity of Uganda NCD Alliance branches to coordinate between each other and do better and more locally anchored education and information outreaches. This information and education effort will supplement the daily efforts of the health clinics with popular one-day events, improving the knowledge and general health of the population of Uganda. The data collected at the public health clinics will be used in a targeted evidence based advocacy effort, aiming at improving the government’s response to the rising NCD burden in Uganda.
