Integrated Child Health Days (ICHDs) Campaign – 30th March to April to 1st May 2022


In Uganda, April and October are months dedicated to reaching out to every child and woman with critical health care services like catch-up vaccinations, deworming and vitamin A supplementation – in addition to family planning services and general health education. These special days are commonly known as Integrated Child Health Days. 

As part of UNICEF and MOH efforts to raise community awareness about these services, key informational messages were developed and sent out to registered U-Reporters.The first initial question was meant to gain consent of those interested in recieving more information during the month of April. Those who consented to particcipate were assigned to one group (ICHDs participants April 2022) and subsequent awareness messages were sent throughout the month of 1st  to 23rd April 2022. To conclude the this exercise, an evaluation poll was sent out on 1st May 2022 purposely to collect feedback from U-Reporters on the campaign, what kind of services offered, if they participated in the exercise and how they heard about it. 


U-Report is a messaging platform that allows Ugandans to report on issues affecting them and their communities. Users also get real-time information and feedback on new initiatives or campaigns. U-Report offers young Ugandans and the public a chance to voice out their opinions on pertinent issues such as health, education, youth unemployment among others.

It allows citizens to speak out on what is happening in their communities and provides a forum to amplify their voices through media, alerts to key stakeholders, and feeds back useful information to the U-Reporters.
