Earlier this week an unpalatable video made its way through Uganda’s media sphere, depicting a decaying fellow in the UK’s House of Lords, known as Henry Bellingham, babbling about regime change in Uganda.

In the video he is quoted saying, “My Lords, will the Minister not agree that one thing that could make a really big difference to this appalling situation (Uganda’s anti-homosexuality stance) would be a change in regime and free and fair elections?”

The NP&HC will generate up-dated data and information about Uganda’s population size, distribution and its attendant demographic and socio-economic characteristics. This is the basis for evidence-based planning, policy formulation and implementation, by Government, for impactful service delivery.
