Update: The DHS Final Report for Uganda 2011 (FR264) says "clusters, were selected from among a list of clusters sampled for the 2009/10 Uganda National Household Survey (2010 UNHS)." The UNHS 2010 report is available for download online, and that report says that ten regions compose the strata. UNHS did not divide each region into urban/rural for sampling, which we often see in other surveys and which had been done for an earlier UNHS.

So, I believe that you can pass region to svyset as the strata. That would certainly be true if you were analyzing UNHS data, but since the Uganda 2011 DHS clusters are a random sample of UNHS clusters, I'm not totally sure this is correct. Perhaps there is no clearly defined "strata" which is why hv023 is left as null. In any case, it might be good enough for your purposes.
