This report presents findings from the 2000 Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (UDHS) for districts served by the Community Reproductive Health Project (CREHP). Where possible, trends in family planning, maternal and child health, and knowledge and behavior among adults of reproductive age are compared to findings from the 1995 UDHS. After a brief introduction, this report presents a demographic description of survey respondants. Following these, the report presents indicators of family planning, of maternal and child health, and finally of STDs and HIV/AIDS. While the trends in some indicators are encouraging, they are associated with unchanging and declining trends in others.
