Abstract

Rural water coverage in Uganda is stagnating and rural sanitation coverage remains far too low. Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) are still not a priority. Nevertheless, the government aims to reach universal coverage not only for households but also for clinics, schools, prisons.

IRC Uganda is working in 4 districts according to the WASH Agenda for Change (WA4C) principles. There are also actions to build national systems to influence sector policy and advocate for more financing for hard to reach districts. One of the challenges is that NGO subsidies sometimes distort the system, when other organisations offer nothing.

A presentation given at the IRC Event on 'Reaching universal coverage: an Agenda for Change', The Hague, The Netherlands on 30 March 2016.
