The Guardian Examines Uganda President Museveni’s Track Record On Family Planning Funding

The Guardian: Has Yoweri Museveni walked the talk on funding family planning in Uganda?
“…[T]he London Family Planning Summit in 2012 appeared to mark a turning point. There, [Uganda President Yoweri] Museveni not only articulated the benefits of family planning but also committed money to it, increasing government funding from $3.3m (£250m) to $5m annually for five years. He also announced plans to mobilize $10m from donors and streamline Uganda’s medical supply systems to improve delivery of family planning commodities. … Dr. Jotham Musinguzi, the director general of the National Population Council, believes Uganda is on the right track. … Yet, when it comes to funding, the picture is blurred…” (Kavuma, 7/28).
