  1. Following the Universal Primary Education (UPE1997) and the Universal Post-Primary Education and Training (UPPET 2007)reforms, access to education has substantially increased in Uganda. This hasled to the expansion of existing schools and establishment of more primary,secondary and tertiary institutions. These gains have made a profoundcontribution to improving the education sector nationwide.
