Four mobile (or community-based) plant health clinics were started in Uganda on a pilot basis in 2005 as an attempt to ensure better plant health advisory services for small-scale farmers.  This new way of delivering primary plant healthcare to farmers has attracted wider interest and the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) have recently included the plant clinics in their new 5-year Development Strategy and Investment Plan to strengthen disease control and surveillance.

The present report is the first output of a newly started research project between University of Copenhagen, Makerere University and CABI. The purpose of this study was to gather results and lessons learned from the pilot period to inform future plant clinic interventions. The study covers issues of organisation and management, clinic operation and performance as well as clinic use and preliminary evidence of outcomes.
