Reproductive Health in Northern Uganda


In February 2007, the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) conducted an assessment of the reproductive health situation in the Kitgum and Pader Districts of northern Uganda. A key finding was the lack of access to family planning services for the Districts’ displaced women, men, and youth. In June 2008 and in May 2009, WRC staff followed up on the status of the original assessment report recommendations. The two-year follow-up mission focused primarily on the Acholi sub-region of Kitgum, Pader and Gulu Districts.
