Our Dear Members and Partners,

The major highlights in the operating environment in 2011 were the general elections, improvement in the health budget, terrorist attacks in Kampala, and emergence of legislations that further narrowed civil liberties and narrowed the working space for civil society.

General elections

The general elections for President, Members of Parliament, and local government leaders were held in February 2011 amid tension and concerns over human rights abuses. Health was one of the issues in the limelight, but ultimately it is not clear how much influence it had on the re-election of President Museveni and his NRM government.
