The United States Mission in Uganda, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), today launched the Strengthening Systems and Public Accountability project to support actions to improve the Government of Uganda’s accountability to its citizens and decrease the corruption that impedes economic growth and development, and that negatively affects the quality of life of ordinary Ugandans.
The five-year project aims to strengthen accountability, deepen public participation in and oversight of public institutions and social services, and reduce corruption in public service sectors.
“We want every Ugandan to be able to access public services without paying a bribe, so that they can build their businesses and strengthen their communities instead of further enriching someone just for doing their job,” said U.S. Ambassador Natalie E. Brown at the project’s launch.
