The purpose of this section is simply to draw together recent articles from various sources concerning health issues in Uganda. I have found that those planning to visit Uganda are curious about such information. I keep postings here for about one year which enables the reader to go back a number of months and establish some context for the information.

The articles are included as they first appeared, without any editing and with full attribution to the source, including a listing of links for major news sources for Uganda.

I guess I should add that I have not attempted to validate everything reported in these articles and you should remember that any healthcare related decision you make should be based on consultation with your doctor or other care giver and not news reports.
