SUMMARY OF PROGRAMMES

The introduction of CHCs into Uganda was also facilitated by CARE International who requested Dr. J. Waterkeyn, then a consultant still developing the CHC Approach,  to assist in an emergency project in Gulu District in 15 IDP Camps. The ambitious target was to build 10,000 latrine within six months as well as to reach 120,000 people with health promotion. This proved to be possible using the CHC Approach and all targets were not only met but exceeded, with 11,500 latrine built within 8 months. CHC’s continue to be used in Northern Uganda and other organisations are now taking this route. WaterAid supporting a training in 2007 for local partner NGOs with a view to scaling up the methodology. Information is needed to ascertain to what extent this has been implemented by the NGOs.

In October 2013 Africa AHEAD teamed up with International Lifeline Fund (ILF), who together with Blue Planet and Reach Scale raised funds to add value to an ongoing project they are doing in the Apac District, where they are rehabilitating and drilling boreholes for the largely pastoralist communities. Africa AHEAD has posted a Project Officer to be embedded in the programme and help to start up 75 Community Health Clubs to ensure that when boreholes are sunk the community values the clean water and is able to keep it clean by good hygiene practices. Training was completed in March 2014 and the impact the CHCs will have on the community by mid 2015.
