Uganda Village Project (UVP) is a non-profit organization working with the community of Uganda’s southeast Iganga District to promote public health and sustainable development. Through partnerships with community based organizations (CBOs) and local government, we utilize local knowledge and maximize community ownership. We facilitate community health and well-being in rural Uganda through improved access, education, and prevention in the following areas:


• Malaria • HIV/AIDS and STIs • Reproductive Health • WASH •
