The Uganda NCDI Poverty Commission held its inaugural meeting on Friday August 9, 2019, in Kampala. The Commission is co-chaired by Dr. Gerald Mutungi and Dr. Isaac Ssinabulya and members hail from the Ministry of Health and a broad array of civil society partners. The Commission will focus on analyzing data in order to better understand the burden of NCDs and injuries in Uganda, with particular attention to conditions that disproportionately impact the poor, and to recommend interventions and policies to address it, based on a priority-setting framework that takes account of both cost-effectiveness and equity.
