Nutrition is a problem in Uganda, especially among women and children. This situation has been worsened by the emergence of HIV/AIDS.

The Government of Uganda recognizes the importance of a healthy population for economic development and its efforts are reflected in strategies including:

  • the launch of the Uganda National Action Plan 2011–2016,[1] which intends to scale-up multisectoral efforts to establish a strong nutrition foundation for Uganda’s development;
  • the formulation of the Uganda Food and Nutrition Policy;
  • the establishment of the Uganda National Health Research Organization.

These efforts reflect the Government's will and commitment to look into food and nutrition issues.
