Uganda, “the pearl of Africa,” is a fast-growing country with a diverse landscape and a largely young population. Global health issues such as HIV/AIDS and family planning access remain challenging realities despite tremendous government leadership and impressive work from civil society organizations. Global Health Corps has worked in Uganda since 2010, proudly partnering with government agencies and local organizations on the frontlines of the health equity movement to address a wide range of issues and deliver lasting impact.
