The State of Uganda Population Report 2011

Every year, the Population Secretariat in the Ministry of Finance Planning and Economic Development, in its State of the Population Report, publishes key population concerns that need to be addressed in Uganda's quest to improve the quality life of its people. The key objective of this report is to provide comprehensive information and data to stimulate broader and deeper thinking, and to contribute to the public debate about Uganda's future. The report reflects on the most important population and development challenges facing Ugandan society, and their causes and consequences.

The theme ''Population and Reproductive Health: Broadening Opportunities for Development'' guides the content of the report. The State of Uganda Population Report 2011 focuses on the Population and Reproductive Health issues in Uganda; and therefore examines the relationship between population and reproductive health and its implications on population trends, economic, social and health challenges facing the country.
