Analytical summary - Food safety and nutrition
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, 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.
