STRIDES was a five year project funded by USAID that aimed at improving quality of and increase access to integrated Reproductive Health (RH)/ Family Planning (FP) and Child Survival (CS) services in 15 districts of Kamuli, Kaliro, Kayunga, Mayuge, Bugiri, Kumi, Kalangala, Kamwenge, Kasese, Kyenjojo, Mityana, Mpigi, Luweero, Nakasongola and Sembabule. STRIDES also implemented activities aimed at improved nutrition. The project contributed to the Uganda Government’s efforts to improve the health of families and communities, fertility reduction, and lower the maternal, newborn, infant and child morbidity and mortality. Under the Project, CDFU was responsible for Behaviour Change Communication activities at the health facility and community levels. CDFU’s support focused on increasing the quality and provision of routine RH/FP and CS services at facility level, improving and expanding access to and demand for RH/FP and CS services at the community level. Working through district based officials, community structures including Village Health teams, CDFU implemented effective communication strategies using a multi media approach. Key targets included men and women in the reproductive age group, young people, health workers and fishing communities.
