USAID/Uganda Communication for Healthy Communities (CHC)

Grant Amount: The total estimated budget for this RFA is $50 million, subject to the availability of funds.

USAID/Uganda anticipates awarding a new, $50 million, five-year cooperative agreement for an activity titled Communication for Healthy Communities (CHC) program.

The goal of this program is to contribute to a reduction in HIV infections, total fertility, maternal and child mortality, malnutrition, malaria and tuberculosis (TB). The Strategic Objective of the program is to increase adoption of healthy behaviors (including uptake of critical health services) through strengthened health communication, in order to
contribute to these improved health outcomes. To achieve this objective, Communication for Healthy Communities aims to achieve the following three Intermediate Results (IRs):
(1) IR1: High quality health communication interventions designed and implemented;
(2) IR2: Improved coordination of health communication interventions; and
(3) IR3: Increased research and knowledge management to enhance health communication.

The Communication for Healthy Communities program will design and execute well-coordinated, evidence- and theory-based health communication interventions to improve knowledge, attitudes, norms, behaviors, and demand for services relating to HIV, tuberculosis, malaria, nutrition, maternal and child health, and family planning. Capacity strengthening of the Government of Uganda (GoU) and other stakeholders, particularly U.S. Government (USG) service delivery partners, is critical to the success of this program. The program will strengthen skills needed to design, manage, and evaluate
health communication interventions, and to adapt and scale up communication efforts in support of service delivery activities at the community level. This program will also enhance the GoU’s capacity to lead and coordinate health communication interventions.

Finally, Communication for Healthy Communities will support a robust learning agenda to strengthen program implementation, document impact, and contribute to the knowledge base relating to health communication.
