Despite significant improvements in maternal and child health (MCH) in Uganda over the past years, there remain significant challenges and needs to improve the health of Uganda’s mothers and children. Between 2005 and 2010 Uganda’s maternal mortality rate dropped from 420 to 310 deaths per 100,000 live births, one of the lowest rates in East Africa and significantly below the regional WHO average for Africa. The child mortality rate for under-five year olds dropped below the 100 deaths per 100,000 live birth mark in the past decade. Yet, with 90 deaths per 100,000 live births (0.09%), Uganda still trail behind its East African neighbours*.
