Policy Brief: Rehabilitation in Uganda: A Call to Action

The urgent and growing need for accessible rehabilitation and assistive technology  in Uganda is clear, but services remain an unfunded priority. ReLAB-HS conducted a qualitative analysis to understand the prioritization of rehabilitation in Uganda and to identify entry points for elevating rehabilitation in national and district health agendas. The study included a document review and 31 key informant interviews with governmental and nongovernmental stakeholders at the national and district levels. This brief provides an overview of our findings and guides stakeholders to strategic considerations for advancing rehabilitation in Uganda’s health agenda and advocating for increased resource allocation.
