The goal of the Irish Aid Country Strategy Paper for Uganda, which covers the period 2010-2014, is to reduce chronic poverty and vulnerability in line with Uganda's National Development Plan. This renewed focus on the chronically poor sees Irish Aid target its support at the most impoverished region of the country, Karamoja while maintaining a focus at national level through support to education and HIV and AIDS, with governance remaining as a central element of Ireland's support.
Uganda has been Ireland's largest recipient of development assistance since 2000, and under the current country strategy, Irish Aid has committed some €118 million through a well-balanced mix of modalities and sectors, including education, the Poverty Action Fund, governance and HIV/AIDS.
