History and origins of AMICAALL in Africa

The Alliance of Mayors and Municipal Leaders’ Initiative for Community Action on AIDS at the Local Level (AMICAALL) is an association of African Mayors and other Urban Leaders formed to support sustainable solutions to the HIV and AIDS epidemic in African Cities and Municipalities. A coordination secretariat was set up in Windhoek, Namibia to support establishment of autonomous AMICAALL Chapters in all African Countries and coordinate mutual support, Information sharing, networking and advocacy.

History and origins of AMICAALL in Africa

Subscribing to AMICAALL Africa, AMICAALL Uganda Chapter was launched on 28th November 2000 at the Mayors’ Parlour when Ugandan Mayors, under the leadership of Kampala Capital City signed the Kampala Declaration. The chapter has since registered and operated as a National Non-Government Organization bringing together Mayors and other urban leaders from the City, Municipalities and Town Councils across the country.

AMICAALL Uganda chapter

AMICAALL Uganda Programme acknowledges the unique challenges facing populations in the urban and peri-urban areas due to unique livelihood situations and works through the existing Local Government systems and structures to support design and delivery of tailored health and development interventions.

Reviewed Strategic Scope and Programme Mandate

AMICAALL developed a Strategic Plan for the period 2016/17-2020/21. As the plan period came to an end, it was essential to develop a new forward-looking, aspirational, roadmap to build on the achievements so far made, considering the environmental changes. At the same time, the changing operating environment and growing stakeholders’ expectations required AMICAALL to redefine its role and increase its effectiveness in working with urban authorities. AMICAALL also needs to give more focused attention to generating financial resources to sustain its operating expenses and development initiatives. Similarly, the new strategic plan built upon AMICAALL’s achievements from the preceding strategic plan, and considered the vital lessons learnt. A strategic plan has been developed for the 2022/23-2026/27 period, the major purpose of which is to provide strategic direction to the organization’s activities over the five-year period, serve as the key tool both for mobilizing needed financial and other resources as well as spearheading the necessary collaborations and partnerships in support of AMICAALL’s work.

The SP aligns to  Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 3, 6, 8, 11, . Accordingly, it aligns to the National Development Plan III, the Vision 2040 which recognizes the impending development challenges emanating from the rapidly growing urbanization and demographics.

Leveraging on its 16 years experience, achievements and structures, AMICAALL Uganda’s Strategic focus has been reviewed. The organization will continue to strengthen urban leadership and governance for effective delivery of services to urban populations.
