School Health and Reading Program

The USAID/Uganda School Health and Reading Program aims to improve reading and health education outcomes in Uganda. This program supports the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES) to achieve improved reading abilities for at least 3.5 million young children by directly supporting reading in 1,300 schools and communities and to improve knowledge and health-seeking behaviors among adolescents about HIV/AIDS by supporting health education in 800 schools. Overall, the project aims to provide reading interventions nationwide in 18,000 schools.
