The Republic of Uganda is a landlocked East African country in the
African Great Lakes region bordered by Kenya, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Tanzania.
Formerly a British protectorate, Uganda became independent in 1962. The country's colonial boundaries brought various
ethnic groups together, which made it difficult to unite the country after independence. In the early post-independence
years, power struggles, human rights abuses, guerrilla warfare and a dictatorial regime were common. Uganda has
become more stable under the leadership of Yoweri Museveni who came into power after the Ugandan Bush War.
Today, Uganda is home to 37,101,745 people. A large percentage, 37.8 percent, lived on less than $1.25 per day
in 2012. Though AIDS has hit Uganda hard, the country's infection rate has fallen dramatically from 30 percent
in the 1980s to 6.4 percent as of 2008. The official languages of Uganda are English and Swahili.
With its fertile soil, regular rainfall, and other natural resources such as oil, gold, copper and other minerals,
Uganda is rich in natural resources. Its economy, depends on agriculture. Oil looks promising to Uganda's future
as it was only recently discovered and Uganda's oil production sector is in the process of being developed.
Uganda's main exports include coffee, tea, and fish. It also exports palm nuts, cut flowers, and tobacco.
Corruption remains problematic for Uganda with its public sector ranked as one of the world's worst by Transparency
International. Human rights is another pressing concern with abuses such as child labor, brutality by rebel forces,
torture and extrajudicial killings, and significantly higher murder rates for those in the LGBT community.
Other challenges in Uganda include increased public debt, Sudanese refuges, high energy costs, unreliable power,
and poor infrastructure.
