In Uganda, health systems are weak and over 75% of the disease burden can be prevented through better health promotion and prevention.
The Education Sector Strategic Plan of the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) prioritises both increased access for all children and improved quality of instructional programmes. ICT can play a crucial role in improving teaching and management processes in schools, but also in increasing access and refrainment as it can facilitate sensitisation and active involvement of the communities. To strengthen capacities regarding teaching and the use of ICT, C4C assists local partners with developing ICT facilitated Instructional and Communication (I&C) materials for the classroom and the communities.
The following local partners work on education projects in Uganda: Computers for Schools Uganda, RWECO, HNU, CEREDO, TU, XRO, CoU-Educ, Mango Tree, CEREDO, LACCODEF, Ave Maria, FaweU.
Since ICT has the potential to increase the efficiency of communication and the spread of information within the health system, the C4C health program in Uganda focuses on capacity building or partner organization to intergrate ICT in their work. Organisation such as Health Child, Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau, Uganda National Health Consumers Organisation and Health Office Diocese of Jinja work on their competency development.
