Project summary

The 'Leveraging strategic health financing for Universal Health Coverage' (LSF) project contributes to Universal Health Coverage (UHC) in Uganda following a Rights Based Approach. It will support result based financing to improve provision of quality services, efficiency, and equity in recourse allocation and as a first step towards a third-payment system of a public health insurance system. Attention for patients’ rights and protection has been included.

The project provides direct support in the area of emergency response in order to strengthen the referral system, and in the area of sexual and reproductive health services and rights to strengthen demand and access, in particular for adolescents and in the area of family planning.
