In 2017, DSW ended its direct work as a country office in Uganda and handed over its mandate to Action 4 Health Uganda (A4HU), a newly registered local organisation. A4HU is based in Kampala and is active in eight districts. It is located in Lubowa on the same premises as the Bonita Training Centre. The organisation is managed by Sarah Kintu and strategically supervised by a seven-member board. The Bonita Training Centre is also available to partners and beneficiaries for capacity building, one of the organisation’s core tasks.

A4HU’s mandate is to complement government youth programmes in the area of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). The focus here is on family planning in order to provide young people with access to modern contraceptives in an age-appropriate manner. A4HU is part of the TeamUp consortium, in which three organisations have joined forces to maximise their opportunities on the ground. The young people are trained not only in SRHR but also in agriculture and the extraction and utilisation of water. To date, A4HU has supported over 130 youth clubs in 18 Youth Empowerment Centres and trained 881 peer educators.
