Typhoid fever and diarrhoea cases have fallen significantly in the capital city Kampala and the district of Kawempe, according to an African Development Bank report. Kawempe has grown very quickly but has a lack of water and sanitation and is located within predominantly low-lying swamp land. The Kawempe Urban Poor Sanitation Improvement Project (KUPSIP), benefiting from U.S.$1.3 million in African Development Bank funding, has from 2013 to 2018, helped to reduce typhoid fever cases by 7.7% and diarrhoea cases by 49.3%.
