Today, millions of people continue to live in extreme poverty, continue to suffer and die from preventable diseases and rights of millions are abused. ICOD Action Network recognizes the importance of all human rights and calls upon governments and civil society organizations need to take collective action to end health, social and economic disparities.

To achieve lasting change and ensure equity, we need a movement of people collaborating across regions, sectors and generations to tackle challenges and develop solutions. Together, we can create the change needed at every level, from communities to global systems, to give all people the chance to leave a healthy and fulfilling life.

Since 2008, ICOD Action Network has been implementing projects aimed at reducing the incidence of HIV transmission, promote Reproductive Health and build community’s capacity to respond to their most pressing challenges like food insecurity. By 2020, our projects will have impacted millions of people in Uganda and across East Africa.
