The Government of Uganda has continuously improved its funding for health services. The health budget analysis indicates a growth of 7 percent from approximately UGX 2.6 Trillion in FY 2019/2020 to UGX 2.8 Trillion in FY 2020/21. Despite the budget increment, the change falls short of the 15 percent of the total annual national budget as proposed by the Abuja Declaration. Retrospectively, the overall health budget has reduced from 10.2 percent to 6.2 percent of the total annual budget in FY 2019/20 and 2020/21 respectively.
