In theory, epidemiological transitions are enhanced by designing of appropriate health strategies aimed at achieving sustainability in the global healthcare system. Therefore, approaches towards the achievement of universal access to healthcare by the global population will reduce mortality rates and improve health in general. This is the core approach adopted by the World Health Organization through the implementation of MDG #5: improving maternal health, MDG #4: reducing child mortality and MDG #6 combating malaria and other infectious diseases. It has been reported that various countries around the globe have recorded diverse progress towards achieving the principal MDG targets, especially with regard to MDG #6. However, the achievement of MDG 6; target 6C depends on the commitment of different countries. It is worth noting that, some countries have recorded remarkable progress towards the reversal of malaria incidence rate while others have lagged behind owing to historical, cultural, structural and critical factors. For instance, Uganda is among the countries which have recorded remarkable progress towards the achievement of MDG 6C target, although it has not met other target objectives of MDG #6. Therefore, this argumentative paper will provide a comprehensive evaluation of Uganda’s progress in combating malaria, and provide appropriate recommendations.
