The Uganda Functional Difficulties Survey (UFDS) 2017 is the first of its kind in Uganda. It was based on a subsample of the Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (UDHS) 2016 and carried out in UDHS households that had persons with disabilities at the time of the survey. The main objective of the UFDS was to collect high-quality data on functional difficulties in Uganda to help in the monitoring and evaluation of disability related programmes and interventions, including national and international development agenda frameworks such as the National Development Plan II, the Global Agenda 2030 and the Africa Agenda 2063.
