EuropeAid is funding the SPEED project in Uganda under the Support to Public Health Institute Program (EuropeAid/1351/ACT/Multi).

SPEED aims to strengthen the capacity of policy analysis, advice and influence of Makerere University School of Public Health and partner institutions, and contribute to accelerating progress towards UHC and health systems’ resilience in Uganda.

SPEED is a strategic partnership of four Ugandan and two international institutions. In Uganda, the partner institutions are 1) Makerere School of Public Health, 2) National Planning Authority, 3) Economic Policy Research Centre and 4) Uganda National Health Consumers Organisation. The international partners are the the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium and Human Sciences Research Council (HRSC) from South Africa.

The project which is being implemented for the period of 5 years aims at boosting policy analysis and influence that supports universal health coverage and health system resilience in Uganda by way of five main activity clusters;

1.   Strengthening resources and expertise for policy analysis

2.   Knowledge generation

3.   Stakeholder identification and engagements

4.   Support for policy development

5.   Monitoring selected policy implementation arrangements

The SPEED project has registered several achievements among these are;

1.   Launching a book on UHC

2.   Convening multisectoral consultations on the research agenda for UHC in Uganda.

3.   Organising a successful national symposium on UHC

4.   Working with the Ministry of Health and development partners on generating and sharing evidence on systems reforms to support UHC. Recent initiatives relate to results-based financing, human resources for health and social determinants of health.

5.   Establishing a website as a one-stop source for information on UHC efforts in Uganda.
