In-Country Advocacy Skills Enhancement Workshop, Uganda

In the spirit of PLP fellow initiatives, and advocacy workshop was held in March 2006, in Uganda. This workshop, facilitated by Philippine PLP Fellows Roberto Ador and Ramon San Pascual and funded by the PLP, brought together Ugandan public and private public health professionals. Thirty -five individuals from 25 civil society organizations were in attendance.

The workshop’s main objective was to enhance advocacy skills of these participants and their organizations.

At the end of the workshop, members recommended that an existing advocacy body (Uganda Reproductive Health Advocacy Network) be revitalized. Other key actions included: transforming policies into action; strengthening horizontal and vertical networks among stakeholders; promotion of good governance and capacity building at all levels; and, enhancing information sharing and data collection for advocacy. The most pressing identified advocacy issue was increased budget allocation towards reproductive health in Uganda.
