  • The following districts are covered by the Programme: Amudat, Apac, Kaberamaido, Katakwi, Kiboga, Kole, Kyankwanzi, Kyegegwa, Kyenjojo, Moroto, Nakapiripirit, Napak, Nebbi and Zombo. Initially 8 districts were selected for the pilot. However, the 8 have since given birth to another 6. Yumbe has also been added on the pilot districts. The selection of the initial 8 districts was based on the following criteria:

  • Share of children in the entire population;

  • Share of elderly persons in the entire population;

  • Share of orphans and vulnerable children in the child population;

  • Share of risky births;

  • Proportion of households living more than 5Km from health facilities; and

  • Share of children (6-12 years) not attending school.

5.1 Selection of the programme districts cont...

  • The highest scoring districts per region were selected. But since this is a national Programme, selection was also dependent on having a representative selection of districts accross all sub-regions in the country. Due to the higher incidence of poverty in the Northern and Eastern Uganda one additional pilot district was proposed for each of these two regions.
