The Uganda NCD Alliance received a grant by Global NCD Alliance Solidarity Fund second phase; NCD Alliance Civil society Solidarity Fund on NCDs and COVID-19. This fund focuses on developing comprehensive and cohesive NCD advocacy and communications strategies towards resilience and recovery under a project entitled: Strengthening communication and media strategies/frameworks and building advocacy blocks on NCDs and COVID 19 coverage as a way of building broader health systems reform and UHC advocacy coalitions. The project is aimed at “a sustainable and meaningful participation of PLWNCDs in NCDs and COVID-19 prevention and control programs so as to influence policy and decision making in Uganda by December 2021 and thereafter. In this second phase we were awarded US$15,000 for 6month (Jul-Dec 2021).
