Uganda has a strategy of free health care in publicly owned health units. However, these units experience shortages of supplies and staff, resulting in many seeking care in private units with user fees. The net effect is lack of protection and catastrophic health expenses.

The proposed national health insurance scheme is one of the financing mechanisms to increase universal coverage.

The high geographical coverage of health units is one of the country's strategies to achieve universal coverage.
