Uganda: Winning Human Resources for Health

While economic development will always have a prominent place in a nation’s planning, civil society organizations can help to ensure its pursuit does not push aside other social goals. Uganda’s Human Resources for Health (HRH) campaign, which won millions of dollars of new funding for health, provides a useful case study for how this can be done.

The HRH campaign was the result of many different actors coalescing around the single goal of securing the resources needed to bolster staff at health clinics. This case study brings to light many important lessons about successful coordination and communication – both within civil society and between CSOs and government actors, such as the legislature and line ministries. It also highlights the strength of a budget-focused strategy for directing the efforts of a broad coalition.
