Elizabeth Arend, Gender Action’s Programs Coordinator, traveled to Uganda in February to conduct a training of trainers with our partners at the National Association for Women’s Action in Development (NAWAD) on how to monitor and do advocacy to improve and expand World Bank and African Development Bank reproductive health spending. Following our initial workshop, our project is currently in Phase One: NAWAD is collecting data from health care providers and their patients at hospitals and health centers throughout Uganda on World Bank promoted user fees that reduce poor women’s access to RH and HIV/AIDS services.

NAWAD and Gender Action will use our research findings to inform information and awareness campaign activities, as well as gender analysis workshops. Your continued financial support for this project will enable NAWAD and Gender Action to train additional Ugandan civil society organizations in IFI gender analysis and advocacy.

See our report from the field on Gender Action’s YouTube page.
