The goal of D4I’s work in Uganda is to foster improved processes, information systems, and coordination of staff and resources for monitoring progress on care reform. To achieve this goal, D4I is working alongside the Uganda Ministry of Gender, Labor, and Social Development (MGLSD), USAID/Uganda, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and USAID-funded implementing partners to strengthen the collection, management, and use of quality routine data. D4I is also supporting the MGLSD to roll out standard indicators and M&E guidelines for alternative care, to identify priorities for a case management information system, and to build a culture of data demand and use for alternative care in Uganda.  

Strengthening Quality Routine Data for Alternative Care
D4I strengthens the capacity of the MGLSD by improving the collection, management, and use of quality routine data on children in alternative care. Activities include data review and use training, mentorship, and supportive supervision. D4I has also conducted geographical mapping of children’s homes and supported MGLSD to plan safe and sustainable family care solutions for children in Unapproved Children’s Homes.
