The Uganda Clinical Guidelines (UCG) has evolved out of the National Standard Treatment Guidelines 1993. It is designed to provide updated, practical, and useful information for both upper and lower level health facilities on the diagnosis and management of common conditions present in Uganda.
The guidelines also established a strong foundation for the appropriate and cost-effective use of essential medicines.
The UCG is meant to be used together with the Essential Medicine and Health Supplies List for Uganda (EMHSLU) 2012, which provides guidance on the appropriate selection of medicines for each level of health care/facility. The general medicines list from the EMHSLU 2012 is included at the end of this book for reference (see Appendix 6).
