Ministry Of Health Launches Pediatric Surgical Services Plan

Uganda Surgical Camp

The Ministry of health has launched a pediatric surgical services plan to ensure access to timely, safe and affordable surgical care for children as it is key in achieving universal health care coverage.

The permanent secretary ministry of health Dr Diana Atwine says, the plan will strengthen pediatric care through training of more nurses and surgeons and constructing 10 theatres in regional referral hospitals.

The pediatric surgical services plan is funded by Kids Operating Room, a UK based organization.

The plan will increase access to surgical care to children across the country. The service will start national hospital and later expand to regional hospitals across Uganda.

The ambitious project will cost over UGX 21 Billion to be successfully enrolled in the country.

The camp will also help in training nurses most especially critical care nurses as well as general surgeons.
