Mission

Our mission is to facilitate community health and well-being in rural Uganda through improved access, education, and prevention.

What We Do

Since 2003, Uganda Village Project (UVP) has been working with the people of Iganga to promote public health and sustainable development in the rural communities of this marginalized district in southeast Uganda. As an international nonprofit organization, we work directly with community-based organizations and local government to utilize local knowledge and maximize community ownership. Our flagship effort is our "Healthy Villages" program, an innovative, grassroots approach to addressing rural healthcare and public health in Uganda. Through the Healthy Villages program, we work at a village-by-village level to address the most pressing healthcare concerns of each community, including malaria, HIV and STIs, household sanitation and hygiene, and family planning access. We also work with obstetric fistula awareness and repair and provision of clean water through shallow wells.
