Description: 
This country profile for Uganda provides a snapshot of the range of agencies and programs working toward responding to emergency and long-term needs and improving the lives of highly vulnerable children. It is hoped that the Ministry of Gender, Labor, and Social Development; U.S. Agencies; United Nations partners; bilateral agencies, and private organizations - through community-level implementing partners - can work together to identify and address the gaps in service delivery and quality and therefore better coordinate a scaled up response to meet the needs of all highly vulnerable children. This profile will inform, to the extent possible, the Second Annual Report to Congress on the implementation of The Assistance for Orphans and Other Vulnerable Children in Developing Countries Act of 2005, also known as Public Law 109-95. The profile is based on a combination of direct feedback from U.S. agencies in Uganda and a desk review in Washington, D.C.
