Conservation Through Public Health advocates locally, nationally, regionally and internationally for integrated approaches to conservation of biodiversity and protected areas in Africa.
We recently developed an advocacy strategy for Conservation Through Public Health (CTPH) with the following four advocacy goals:
(1) Overarching advocacy goal on the CTPH integrated approach to sustainable development
(2) Population, Health and Environment (PHE) advocacy focused on community based family planning around protected areas
(3) Poverty and Conservation advocacy to advance conservation through improving rural livelihoods
(4) One Health advocacy for coordinated approaches to disease monitoring, outbreaks and prevention in Uganda.
CTPH is a strong advocate in Uganda and internationally for integrated approaches combining wildlife conservation, community health and alternative livelihoods for sustainable development. CTPH has shared our PHE model nationally and regionally resulting in the formation of the Uganda National PHE Network, which CTPH is a member of. We use evidence from our programs to advocate for increased funding, improved policies and better awareness of integrated development.
Advocacy achievements include:
