Uganda needs more funds committed to healthcare: Join us now

On September 18, 2012, Uganda’s media reported that the ruling National Resistance Movement made a U-turn and agreed with President Museveni that health matters aren’t a priority now. The meeting later had concluded that Health Committee chairman Dr Sam Lyomoki, together with Chief Whip Justine Lumumba and Premier Amama Mbabazi should write a paper on national health concerns which would be considered during the drafting of next year’s budget.

What does this mean?
Mothers and children like these will die in thousands...
She needs 260bn allocated to the health

Children like these need health care sector prioritized  so that they can live to their full potential

The health sector will remain understaffed and underfunded  until Uganda passes the next budget mid next year.
HIV prevalence  will continue to rise from 6.4% in 2004 to 7.3% in 2012 and more people living with HIV/AIDS will die because they won’t have access to life saving ARVs."
Join the fight now and lets demand for 260 billion for Uganda’s health secotr. Write a petition to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Uganda.
You can also let the Hon. Prime Minister know tweet @Amamambabazi using the hashtag #ugHealthBudget - We need more funds committed to healthcare because it's PRIORITY (Credit #enamara).
