Advance Family Planning in Uganda

Publication Year: 2011

They have responded to increasing demand for contraception, high and stagnant rates of pregnancy-related deaths and a growing population of young people. Setting a new, locally driven agenda for family planning, these government and nongovernmental leaders have capitalized on President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s increased emphasis on Uganda’s economic future and the health of mothers and their children.
