Mid-Term Evaluation Report for UNMU Collaboration with NNO
Uganda Nurses and Midwives Union (UNMU) was formed in 2003 as an independent, non partisan and professional union representing nurses and midwives in Uganda. The report shows the findings of a mid-term evaluation of “Organisational strengthening of Uganda Nurses and Midwives Union project” (running from 2010-2015). The project is a partnership between the UNMU and the Norwegian Nurses Organisation (NNO) with the overall goal of strengthening UNMU. The findings of this evaluation report cover the period from December 2009 to May 2013, which is the mid-way age of the 6 year project targeting to end in 2015. Project background was informed by the UNMU Needs Assessment Survey conducted in Uganda in 2007, which depicted poor working conditions among nurses and midwives. These conditions were as well characterised by lack of strong bargaining system to influence better conditions of nurses and midwives and service delivery of the health care system.
