U-SHAPE Your Life | Your Family | Your Community |Uganda | The World

U-SHAPE is an initiative run in conjunction with the Royal College of General Practitioners delivering Family Planning and Sexual Health Training and Education in Uganda. Our work began at Bwindi Community Hosiptal and is rapidly spreading to other hospitals and districts across Uganda. We are honoured to currently have funding and support from the Tropical Health & Education Trust (THET), which has been a huge help in advancing our programs. We hope to feed back lessons learned from our experiences in Uganda to inform the further development USAID and WHO resources for family planning training.
