The USAID maternal and child health and nutrition (MCHN) Activity aims to strengthen government performance in implementing strategies to improve maternal, newborn, and child health and nutrition outcomes in Uganda. EnCompass conducted a comprehensive Gender, Youth, and Social Inclusion (GYSI) analysis to identify gaps, opportunities, and practices in access to and use of MCH and nutrition services by marginalized and underserved populations—including women and girls, youth, individuals with disabilities, low-income groups, certain ethnic and religious groups, and orphans and vulnerable children.

The study team conducted the analysis in two phases: a national-level GYSI document review and a Kampala level GYSI analysis. The Kampala analysis aimed to identify opportunities and gaps related to GYSI for more equitable access to and utilization of MCH and nutrition services in Kampala City.

This report presents the methodology, findings, conclusions, and recommendations from the analysis. There is a separate report for the phase 1 GYSI Analysis Document Review.
