Uganda competed at the inaugural Winter Paralympic Games in 1976 in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. The country entered only one athlete, Tofiri Kibuuka, who competed in cross-country skiing. He did not win any medals.[1]

Uganda was the only African country to take part in the 1976 Games, and thus the first African country ever to compete at the Winter Paralympics.[2]

Uganda was also the only country to compete at the 1976 Winter Paralympics but not at the 1976 Winter Olympics.[3]
