elder from Karamoja


This Policy Brief is part of a series and is based on the Social Protection: Investment Case developed by the Government of Uganda (2016) with a special focus on senior citizens' grant. The business case was developed over one and a half years and rests of the best available data available at the time of drafting. Recently released GDP figures may significantly reduce the projected cost of scaling up some of the interventions proposed in the Investment Case.
