Bad roads affecting ambulance system: Part I

Uganda’s healthcare sector has faced numerous hurdles – from inadequate funding, flight of qualified health workers abroad, to lack of/limited equipment.

Although government and development partners have been trying to keep the sector afloat, other challenges, such as the sorry state of ambulances, remind the country of the long journey that still needs to be taken.

In the first of a three-part series, ANDREW MASINDE explores the impact of bad roads on ambulance services in Uganda’s rural areas.

The article was published in New Vision with funding from ACME’s Enhanced Media Reporting for Transparency and Accountability (EMERTA) programme.
