Health Status and Well Being of Children in Uganda: A Comparative Analysis of Childcare Arrangements in Relatively Secure and Post Conflict Areas

The researcher will employ a both quantitative and qualitative study approach to study the health status and Well being of children in post conflict and relatively secure areas in Uganda. The areas of study will include Kampala and Wakiso districts in Central Uganda for the relatively secure areas and Northern Region for the post conflict area. The topic of study was selected because it is under researched yet it is important in post conflict areas where basic survival interests often compete with the well being of children. Also in secure areas since many women work outside their homes, it is important to find out the state of health care by the different care providers so that women are encouraged to continue with career and at the same time have the confidence that their children are provided with good care.
