JSI successfully implemented the Uganda Program for Human and Holistic Development (UPHOLD) for the U.S. Agency for International Development from 2002 to 2008. Further information about UPHOLD activities can be obtained from

The Uganda Program for Human and Holistic Development (UPHOLD) was committed to empowering families, communities and institutions to improve the quality and use of services in education, health and HIV/AIDS.

UPHOLD approached this through value-added partnerships and using people-centered approaches for a sustained client-friendly environment.

UPHOLD was a six-year program (October 2002 to September 2008) funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and supported by the Government of Uganda. The Program strengthened capacity in 34 districts for the improved delivery, planning, management, monitoring and effective use of social services in three integrated social sectors: health, education and HIV/AIDS. The Program's primary beneficiaries were Ugandan men, women and children.

UPHOLD held its End of Project Conference 6-7th May, 2008 to celebrate its achievements and focus on the theme of Making A Difference in the Lives of Ugandans: Delivering Social Services Through Partnership.
