Recap: February 18 – Uganda

On Tuesday, February 18, study tour delegates visited a health center in the Mpigi district, Mulago hospital in Kampala, and attended a partnership dinner. At the Mpigi Health Centre located outside of the capital city of Kampala, delegates observed the impact of the USAID -funded, MSH-led STRIDES for Family Health project which improves health services and builds capacity. After visiting the Mpigi district, the group traveled back to Kampala to visit Mulago Hospital where they met staff, toured the hospital’s NCD ward, and learned about the progress made and the challenges faced by the public healthcare system. To conclude the day’s events, the group attended a dinner and discussion, entitled Partnerships for Global Health, where they met with private partners and the Chairman of the Parliament’s Committee on Health to discuss the role that diverse global health partners play in sustaining strong health systems.
