UUKHA currently serves as an enabler for several UK (predominantly first and third sector) organisations who are undertaking healthcare capacity building activity in Uganda.

It does not aim to control or inhibit individual organisational members activity but rather provide a system-platform to allow each member to maximize their impact by linking them to other agencies working in the same geographical region or sharing similar activities.

UUKHA provides a mechanism to provide assurance to member organisations that their activities map to the priorities of the Ugandan ministry of health and wider government.
