Uganda Reproductive Health Voucher Project

About the project

The Uganda Reproductive Health Voucher Project (URHVP) was implemented by Marie Stopes UG on behalf of the Ugandan Ministry of Health.

The program is supported by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) through the Global Partnership on Output Based Aid (GPOBA) and services 25 districts in South Western and Eastern Uganda.

Accessing the voucher

The vouchers currently expire on 30th October 2019. Mothers are encouraged to use their vouchers to receive maternal child health and family planning services before the expiry date. Even without a voucher, all mothers are encouraged to continue visiting a health facility when pregnant to deliver a healthy baby.

Vision and achievements

URHVP targets 156,000 pregnant women to deliver under skilled attendance through a subsidised voucher scheme offering a package of safe delivery services consisting of:

  • Four antenatal visits
  • Safe delivery
  • One postnatal visit
  • Treatment and management of selected pregnancy-related medical conditions and complications (including caesarian sections), and
  • Emergency transport.

The project has had many achievements including strengthening the health system, enhancing transparency and accountability and strengthening referral linkages.

The project has more than exceeded the original project targets and proved to have a significant impact on improving maternal health outcomes in Uganda.
