Uganda National Minimum Health Care Package (UNMHCP) guides the delivery of primary health care by the Community Health Department of the hospital. The department carries out essential cost-effective interventions designed to respond to the most important causes of disease burden in the catchment area. The interventions are organised around four aspects of health care; integrated maternal and child health services, prevention and control of major infectious diseases, prevention and control of non-communicable and cross-cutting areas of health promotion, community health initiatives, environmental health and school health as well as gender and health. These sets of services are provided by health professionals and village health teams in Uganda. These VHTs significantly support PHC, especially in rural areas where the proportion of skilled workers is lower.
