The development of this second National Health Policy (NHP II) has been informed
by the National Development Plan (NDP) for the period 2010/11-2014/15, the 1995
Constitution of the Republic of Uganda and the new global dynamics.

The NHP II has been developed through a participatory process involving twelve Technical Working Groups (TWGs) whose membership was drawn from the Ministry of Health (MoH), relevant Government Ministries, Health Development Partners (HDPs), the private sector, Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and Local Governments.

The focus of NHP II shall be on health promotion, disease prevention, early diagnosis
and treatment of diseases. It will specifically prioritise the effective delivery of the
Uganda National Minimum Health Care Package (UNMHCP), more efficient use of
available health resources, strengthening public and private partnerships for health
and strengthening of health systems. In the period of the NHP II and in line with
global agendas, emphasis will be placed on attempts to achieve universal access
to a minimum health care package as well as equitable and sustainable financing
