NAMBOOZE PROTESTS SUDANESE GETTING FREE MEDICAL SERVICES IN UGANDA WITHOUT PAY
Video: MoH MESSAGE ON CHILDREN & MATERNAL HEALTH
By Mulengera Reporters
“Can Ugandans cross to South Sudan or Rwanda or any other county in East African region to seek free medication? Why are people of Southern Sudan getting free medication at the expense of Ugandans?” Betty Nambooze put the above question to Minister of Health for General Duties Anifa Kawooya during an appearance before her Committee of Government Assurances.
Nambooze, who had summoned the MoH team to inquire into Covid19 vaccines availability, was intrigued that up to 500 South Sudanese weekly take advantage of the porous borders and cross into Uganda to get free medical services at Arua Regional Referral Hospital. Kawooya promised to return to the committee with a comprehensive report highlighting the extent to which this problem is widespread through all borders of Uganda.
