Analytical summary - Non-communicable diseases and conditions
Noncommunicable diseases are an emerging problem in Uganda, as is the case in all developing countries.
Unfortunately, Uganda does not have nationally representative data on noncommunicable diseases. The country also lacks a comprehensive noncommunicable disease policy, strategic plan, and standards and guidelines for managing noncommunicable diseases.
This situation puts the country at risk of enhancing the burden of these diseases.
