USAID Uganda Strengthening Decentralization for Sustainability (SDS) is a USAID-funded program aiming at improving the results and sustainability of decentralized service delivery, with initial emphasis on HIV/AIDS services at local government levels in Uganda through four objectives; (1) to strengthen coordination of activities at the district and sub-county level; (2) to improve district management of resources and programs; (3) to provide financial support through grants to local governments for better service delivery; and (4) to institute and support innovative approaches to sustain social sector service delivery.
SDS is being implemented by Cardno Emerging Markets USA, Ltd. (Cardno) along with other international and local partner organizations. Embodied in these objectives is an innovative design, including facilitating district coordination of donor interventions, providing technical assistance (TA) to local governments to effectively identify and manage interventions, and a three-tiered performance-based grants scheme that supports coordination and implementation of activities as well as district innovations in service delivery
