Our Mission

To improve the quality of life of the people of Uganda, by influencing Government policies and programmes to address population patterns and trends in a sustainable and inclusive manner.

Our Achievements

  • Coordination of effective implementation of the National Population Policy and programmes countrywide.
  • Increased understanding of inter-linkages between population and development issues thus putting them high on the agenda.
  • Supported the integration of population variables into development plans and programmes at national, sectoral, district and lower levels.
  • Establised an institutional framework for the implementation of the population policy and programme at district and lower levels.
  • Established strategic partnerships with Government Line Ministries and agencies, Parliament, Civil Society Organisations, International Organisations and development partners on population and development issues.
  • Mobilised resources for the implementation of the National Population Policy and Programme.
  • Developed a Strategic Plan, a Monitoring and Evaluation Framework and a National Population Action Plan for operationalization of the National Population Policy.
