Plague outbreaks: the gender and age perspective in Okoro County, Nebbi
Founded by a group of Baha'is in Uganda in 2001, UPLIFT operates in more than 100 communities in the Nebbi District of the West Nile Region of Uganda, an isolated and relatively impoverished area in the northwestern corner of the country.
The effects of civil strife there sometimes spill over into Nebbi, and security issues make travel to and from the region difficult.
The economy of the Nebbi District is dependent primarily on subsistence agriculture.
