Northern Uganda was devastated by a 20-year armed conflict from 1986 to 2006. The areas most affected were Gulu, Kitgum and Pader districts in Acholi Region, with spill over into Lira, Otuke and Aleptong districts in Lango Region. More than two million people were internally displaced. Resettlement of displaced persons, economic recovery projects and cultural and religious coping strategies have helped counteract the vulnerability of people affected by the civil war, but the pace of recovery has been slow.
