Ugandan Network for Workplace Health Promotion (UNWHP)
UNWHP is a voluntary independent movement founded in 2009 by Mr Benedict Twinomugisha with the goal of promoting health and workplace safety. Currently, the steering committee is comprised of members from different disciplines including Health promotion, Psychology, Medicine and Social science among others. The network mainly targets both employees and employers in small enterprises to enable them minimise health and safety related hazards such as HIV/AIDS, workplace injuries, and occupational stress among others. The network has its secretariat in Kampala, Uganda.
UNWHP's main activities include:
- To train peer educators in areas of behaviour change as a strategy to minimise risk behaviours among the employees
- To empower and enable employers for optimum resource utilization to improve working conditions
- To disseminate information amongst member enterprises; foster positive attitudes among employees and employers that will enable them make responsible choices towards healthy life styles.
- To effectively network with other development organisations and attract support from the government in areas of workplace health promotion.
