In Uganda DanChurchAid supports the following projects
Since the beginning of the 1990s, the Ugandan economy has improved radically. The government is attempting reforms in order to achieve economic stability and has privatized several public companies.
Corruption is widespread in Uganda and it affects the poorest part of the population heavily. In spite of improvements every third Ugandan still lives below the poverty line, and in North Eastern Uganda (Karamoja and Teso)
The districts of Karamoja have the highest Human Poverty Indices (HPI) with Nakapiripirit and Moroto having 63.5%while Kotido has 53.8% compared to the national average of 37.5%
The Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS) indicated that in Teso, districts, 64% of the Katakwi population and 67% of Amuria live below the poverty line.
In the same area, extreme weather conditions affect the population on a regular basis, as a result of the world’s climate changes.
Uganda also struggles with increased numbers of HIV infections. More than two million children in Uganda have lost their parents to AIDS. The national HIV Indicator survey findings (UDHS) revealed in 2012 that the HIV/AIDS trends in Uganda have risen. Prevalence rates among a proportion of Ugandans, age (15-49) infected with HIV to have shot to 7.3% (and even higher in women at 8.3% from 6.4 % in the 2004-05 UDHS. The increase was not only for both urban and rural areas.
