H with descender (Ⱨ ⱨ) is a letter of the Latin alphabet, derived from H with the addition of a small descender. It was used in Uyghur to represent [h] (~ English h), while a regular H was used to represent [x] (~ German ch in ach).

This letter was in use from the early 1960s, when a Latin alphabet was introduced for writing Uighur to replace the Arabic script, up until 1984–86 when the Latin alphabet was phased out and the official script was changed back to Arabic. The equivalent Arabic letter is ه.
