MUBS was established in the 1960s as National College of Business Studies (NCBS), the national college of business studies. It offered business and management diplomas as well as professional training in business. At that time, the college offered diplomas, the main ones being the Uganda Diploma in Business Studies and the Higher Diploma in Marketing.[1] In 1997, Faculty of Commerce at Makerere University was merged with NCBS, thereby creating MUBS, a constituent college of Makerere University. The staff and students of both institutions were brought together at the 45 acres (18 ha) campus at Nakawa, approximately 5.5 kilometres (3.4 mi), east of Kampalas central business district.[1][2] In 2001, due to changes in the laws of Uganda, MUBS transformed from a constituent college of Makerere University to a "public tertiary institution" affiliated to Makerere University. However this arrangement did not work well, resulting in Makerere introducing competing duplicate courses at the main campus, ...

Multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter species are common causes of nosocomial infections worldwide. Recently we reported the occurrence of carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae, P. aeruginosa and Acinetobacter species at Mulago National Referral Hospital in Kampala, Uganda, but the isolates were not analyzed for genetic relatedness. Herein we report the intra-species genotypic diversity among P. aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii isolated from hospitalized patients and the environment at Mulago Hospital, using repetitive elements-based PCR (Rep-PCR) genotyping. A total of 736 specimens from hospitalized patients were processed for culture and sensitivity testing yielding 9 (1.2%) P. aeruginosa and 7 (0.95%) A. baumannii. Similarly, 100 samples from the hospital environment were processed yielding 33 (33%) P. aeruginosa and 13 (13%) A. baumannii. Altogether, 62 non-repetitive isolates were studied (42 P. aeruginosa and 20 A. baumannii), of which 38% (16/42) P. aeruginosa and
Co morbid depression among people with Type II diabetes is twice as prevalent as in the general population. Moreover, there is scanty literature on depression among people with Type II diabetes in the context of Uganda. The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalence of depression and the association of depression, age, gender and marital status on levels of glycosated hemoglobin (HbA1c) among people with Type II diabetes at Mulago National Referral Hospital (MNRH), Uganda. The study was a quantitative, cross-sectional study design which recruited 254 respondents. A subset of 70 respondents was used to measure levels of glycosated hemoglobin. The results showed a prevalence of depression of 7.9% among the diabetic subjects. The results showed no statistically significant difference in levels of glycosated hemoglobin (HbA1c) between the group with depression and the group without depression. There was no statistically significant relationship between glycosated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and the ...

The implementation and utilization of programmes for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV in most low income countries has been described as sub-optimal. As planners and service providers, the views of health workers are important in generating priorities to improve the effectiveness of the PMTCT programme in Uganda. We explored the lessons learnt by health workers involved in the provision of PMTCT services in eastern Uganda to better understand what more needs to be done to strengthen the PMTCT programme. A qualitative study was conducted at Mbale Regional Referral Hospital, The AIDS Support Organisation (TASO) Mbale and at eight neighbouring health centres in eastern Uganda, between January and May 2010. Data were collected through 24 individual interviews with the health workers involved in the PMTCT programme and four key informants (2 district officials and 2 officials from TASO). Data were analyzed using the content thematic approach. Study themes and sub-themes were

Uganda hosts many refugees who have been in the country for more than 20 years, and in some cases in excess of 40 years. Refugee Law Project estimates that they number in the thousands, and are of primarily Sudanese, Congolese and Rwandese origin. Some have spent their entire lives here, raised families here, and consider Uganda their home. However, up until now they have not been provided with the opportunity to legally become Ugandan. This briefing paper will explain how the law provides refugees with the opportunity to become citizens. Unfortunately, while the law is clear, the reality is that the government has not yet implemented the necessary procedures ...

INTRODUCTION: Delay in the diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) is common in many countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. Timely diagnosis of active tuberculosis is crucial in minimizing morbidity and mortality in the community as well as nosocomial transmission in health care facilities. This study aimed at determining factors associated with health service delay in the diagnosis and initiation of treatment among new PTB patients presenting to the National Referral Hospital-Mulago. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study among eligible new PTB patients presenting at the National referral TB treatment center Mulago hospital, between March to May 2009. The patients were consecutively recruited and interviewed using a semi-structured questionnaire to assess socio- demographic and health service factors. Multivariate logistic regression using odds ratios and 95% confidence intervals was done. RESULTS: Two hundred and sixty six newly diagnosed PTB patients were enrolled, of which 65.4% experienced health

Health workers at Fort Portal Regional Referral Hospital have expressed concern over the high mortality rate, with about 40 mothers reported to have died at the facility since January, According to the assistant in charge of maternity ward, Ms Nusura Naziwa, their assessment established that mothers lack antenatal care and they come to the facility when it is too late. "Most of the pregnant mothers come to the hospital when in a very critical condition. Some come when they have severe malaria and we try our best to save their lives and that of their babies but in most cases, it is too late. The health worker attributed the problem to poverty. She added that when the condition is very bad, we refer mothers to Mulago National Referral Hospital but most fail to go, saying they have no money to take care of themselves while at Mulago and end up dying here. The principal hospital administrator, Ms Grace Rubaale, said they have worked tirelessly to reduce mortality rate but mothers from the remote ...
Discussion Prevalence and morphological types of anaemia We demonstrated a high prevalence of anaemia (64.6%) among patients admitted to the emergency medical ward at Mulago Hospital, comparable to the 64.4% in a study among postnatal mothers in Tororo district, Uganda.6 This could be explained by the fact that both studies were carried out in clinical settings. However, the prevalence rate in this study is much higher than that reported in the Uganda Demographic and Health Survey (UDHS), where 28.4% of men and 41% of women were anaemic.20 The UDHS was population based, which may explain the lower levels of anaemia compared with our study, in which patients were ill.. Similarly, the prevalence rate in our study was higher than in population-based studies in Kenya and Tanzania. In Tanzania18 the prevalence of anaemia among people aged 15 - 65 years was 43.4%, while in Kenya14 the prevalence was 22% among adolescents and adults aged 16 years and over.. Generally the prevalence of anaemia was ...
HIV /AIDS is a major public health problem in Uganda. The prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV/ AIDS (PMTCT) was launched in Uganda in November 2001 and in Mbale Hospital in May 2002. Currently, PMTCT services have been integrated into mainstream antenatal care services throughout the country.. Though engaging men as partners is a critical component in the PMTCT programme, their involvement has been low. Measures to increase male partner involvement in the PMTCT programmes have not been explored in Uganda.. Objectives: To determine the effect of a written invitation letter to the spouses of women, attending their first antenatal visit on: (a) couple attendance at subsequent antenatal clinic visits; and (b) couple acceptance of HIV testing.. Study site: The study will be carried out at Mbale Regional Referral Hospital in eastern Uganda. Study design: A randomised clinical trial among 1060 (530 intervention and 530 control) new antenatal attendees. The intervention will be a written ...
The researchers concern was on the factors affecting teacher turnover in private secondary schools in Wakiso district. The study particularly sought to establish how employer, employee and external related factors affect teacher turnover. The study was prompted by the overwhelming teacher attrition in most private secondary schools in Uganda. Private secondary schools have higher teacher turnover than government schools but ironically, the former constitute the biggest percentage of secondary schools in Uganda. In fact, half of private secondary schools staff leave within the first five years and this obviously has negative consequences on students performance. This study therefore investigated the factors responsible for this revolving door also called teacher turnover in private secondary schools in Wakiso District. The study was conducted using the descriptive research design where a cross-sectional survey was used because the population to be studied was too big and this study design ...

This pilot cross-sectional survey of aflatoxin exposure among adults and children living in rural Uganda was conducted within the context of an existing population-based cohort study - the GPC. It was originally established in 1989, by the UK Medical Research Council and the Uganda Virus Research Institute, in Kalungu District, south-western Uganda, to examine prevalence, incidence, risk factors, and trends of infection with the human immunodeficiency virus in a rural African population (Nunn et al. 1994). More recently, research activity has broadened to include the epidemiology and genetics of other communicable and of non-communicable diseases, including cancer, cardio-vascular disease and diabetes (Asiki et al. 2013).. In brief, the GPC is a community-based open cohort study of residents of neighbouring villages within one half of a subcounty, lying about 40 km from the shores of Lake Victoria. The population is scattered across the countryside in villages defined by administrative ...

Individual women and couples randomized to the intervention arm will receive the ERHTEC intervention at 3, 6, 12, and 18 months postpartum. Follow-up will end at 24 months postpartum or 6 weeks after the end of breastfeeding, whichever occurs first. ...
Malaria control is seriously limited in Africa by the increasing resistance of parasites to available drugs. Important needs are the characterization of drug resistance and the assessment of the comparative efficacy of available drugs. These goals require skilled personnel and a complex infrastructure for research. This proposal describes a training program for Uganda that builds on a collaboration between UCSF and Makerere University that began in 1998, has engaged Ugandan and American trainees, and has established a productive center for clinical malaria research in Kampala. The principal goal of this project will be to train Ugandans in modern methods of clinical, epidemiological, and molecular research in Uganda. These are broad objectives, but they will be pursued in a focused manner, with all research activities directed toward the evaluation of anti-malarial drug efficacy and resistance in Kampala. For all activities, trainees will receive one-on-one mentoring from project faculty and ...

On Friday 7 April, I was invited to give two guest lectures at the law faculty of Makerere University, Kampala. This was a real honour - the faculty is widely seen as one of the best in Africa and the university has an illustrious list of alumni, including heads of state past and present such as Julius Nyerere and Joseph Kabila, the current archbishop of York, John Sentamu and numerous leading East African jurists and lawyers.. I was asked to give a practitioners perspective on two areas of the law in which I specialise: international arbitration and business and human rights. As Ugandas oil industry moves into the production phase and plans are laid for the construction of a $4 billion oil refinery in Hoima and a 1400km pipeline connecting the oil fields with the Indian Ocean, these areas of the law are a hot topic in Uganda. The future lawyers, businesspeople and politicians in the audience who stand to inherit this exciting opportunity were keen to understand the role that international ...

Background: Carbapenemases have increasingly been reported in Enterobacteriaceae worldwide.Chromosomal and plasmid mediated resistance in Enterobateriaceae, renders them the most variable of all bacteria in susceptibility to antimicrobial agents. Most of carbapenemases are plasmid encoded hence this allows them to easily spread from onebateria to another. Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae cause a high mortality as they kill up to 50% of patients who acquire bloodstream infections from them and yet their prevalence in Uganda is not known. This study determined the prevalence of carbapenemases and carbapenemase encoding genes among clinical isolates. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study with a total of 196 clinical isolatesobtained from department of medical microbiology clinical laboratory, Makerere University. The isolates included;41.8%E.coli, 39.8% K. pneumoniae, 5.6% Enterobacterspp, 4.1% Citrobacterfreundii, 3.1% Proteus mirabilis, 2.0% Klebsiellaoxytoca, 1.5% Proteus vulgaris, ...

Oct 15, 2012 Uganda "has overcome a violent past, but hope is daily threatened by a force more deadly than any warlord or civil unrest": the mosquito, Ugandan Health Minister Christine Ondoa writes in a GlobalPost opinion piece. According to the WHO, "Uganda has the highest incidence of malaria in the world," and the disease is endemic in more than 95 percent of the country, she notes. Malaria "deeply affect[s]" Ugandas economy, Ondoa says, noting Ugandans spend 25 percent of their incomes to treat and prevent the disease; children miss "countless school days," and the disease renders some developmentally impaired after becoming infected. "As a result of these tremendous losses, African economists estimate that, if unchecked, malarias toll on Ugandas annual GDP will rise over the next five years to as much as $3.2 billion," she states.. Like the recent outbreak of Ebola, "[m]alarias unbearable toll on Uganda should be considered a national emergency, and its eradication should be an effort ...
Gen. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is the current president of Uganda.. The President is both the head of state and head of government of the Republic of Uganda, and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces.. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni became President of the Republic of Uganda on January 29, 1986 after leading a successful five-year liberation struggle. He went to the bush with 26 other young men and organized the National Resistance Movement and National Resistance Army (NRM/NRA) to oppose the tyranny that previous regimes had unleashed upon the population.. After victory, he formed a broad-based government that helped to unite the countrys political groups. Previous to the struggle of 1981-1986, Museveni had been one of the leaders in the anti-Amin resistance of 1971-1979 that had led to the fall of that monstrous regime.. Museveni, who has been politically active since his student days at Ntare School, Mbarara, in south west Uganda, studied political science at the University of Dar es Salaam, ...
Uganda enjoys a unique location at the heart of Sub-Saharan Africa within the East African region and lies astride the equator. The country is bordered by Sudan in the north, Kenya in the east, the United Republic of Tanzania in the south, Rwanda in the southwest and the Democratic Republic of Congo in the west. This land linked position, gives the country a strategic commanding base to be a regional hub for trade and investment.

Background Although World Health Organization guidelines recommend clinical judgment and chest radiography for diagnosing tuberculosis in HIV-infected adults with unexplained cough and negative sputum smears for acid-fast bacilli, the diagnostic performance of this approach is unknown. Therefore, we sought to assess the accuracy of symptoms, physical signs, and radiographic findings for diagnosing tuberculosis in this population in a low-income country with a high incidence of tuberculosis. Methodology We performed a cross-sectional study enrolling consecutive HIV-infected inpatients with unexplained cough and negative sputum smears for acid-fast bacilli at Mulago Hospital in Kampala, Uganda. Trained medical officers prospectively collected data on standard symptoms and signs of systemic respiratory illness, and two radiologists interpreted chest radiographs in a standardized fashion. We calculated positive- and negative-likelihood ratios of these factors for diagnosing pulmonary tuberculosis (defined
Dental arch dimensions are useful in dental practice and in forensic odontology. Local data is essential because ethnic differences exist in dental arch dimensions. In the Ugandan population no studies had been done on dental arch dimensions. The objective of the current study was to determine the variations in dental arch dimensions with age and gender in a sample of dental casts from the Ugandan population. This was a secondary analysis of dental casts previously prepared using mandibular and maxillary arch impressions of 220 children (85 boys and 135 girls) aged 12-17 years recruited from schools in Kampala, Uganda. Dental arch dimensions for the maxilla and mandibular casts were taken using a digital vernier calliper. The data was analysed using the means based independent samples t test to obtain the descriptive statistics with regression analysis being used to obtain the regression coefficients and constants using STATA 12. The overall maxillary dimensions were significantly smaller in females
Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was born in 1945 in Ntungamo, in the Ankole district of southwestern Uganda. Museveni was provided with an excellent education by Ugandan standards, attending Kyamate Boys School (1953-1959); Mbarara High School (1959-1960); and Ntare School (1961-1966).

Hanifah Nanyonjo is a midwife at Mulago National Referral Hospital and has been working in the role for 15 years.. "We usually tell the mothers to resume sex after six weeks or longer," she says. "But you find some telling you that they resume after seven days, especially where they had normal deliveries.". Nnanyonjo adds that the delayed resumption of sex helps mothers to avoid unintended pregnancies but also gives time for them to recuperate, especially important if they lost a lot of blood. Where sex has been initiated early after delivery, she observes dangers associated with episiotomy (a surgical incision between the vagina and anus during labour, which is then stitched) including Sepsis, a life-threatening illness caused by the body overreacting to infection.. Magoba Lillian, a midwife and mother of one, says: "Women need ample rest before resuming sexual activity and the rest is crucial for recovery as they breastfeed and also care for the newly born baby. The rest also allows ample time ...

Infections of the central nervous system (CNS) are severe conditions, leading to neurological sequelae or death. Knowledge of the causative agents is essential to develop guidelines for case management in resource-limited settings. Between August 2009 and October 2012, we conducted a prospective descriptive study of the aetiology of suspected CNS infections in children two months to 12 years old, with fever and at least one sign of CNS involvement in Mbarara Hospital, Uganda. Children were clinically evaluated on admission and discharge, and followed-up for 6 months for neurological sequelae. Pathogens were identified from cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and blood using microbiological and molecular methods. We enrolled 459 children. Plasmodium falciparum (36.2%) and bacteria in CSF (13.3%) or blood (3.3%) were the most detected pathogens. Viruses were found in 27 (5.9%) children. No pathogen was isolated in 207 (45.1%) children. Patterns varied by age and HIV status. Eighty-three (18.1%) children ...

Abstract. We evaluated the association between severity of sepsis and in-hospital mortality in 150 patients with non-surgical sepsis at a regional referral hospital in Uganda. In-hospital mortality occurred in 5 of 52 (9.6%) patients with sepsis, 24 of 71 (33.8%) patients with severe sepsis, and 16 of 27 (59.3%) patients with septic shock. In the multivariate analysis, the identification of severe sepsis (adjusted hazard ratio [AHR] = 2.9, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.0-8.2, P = 0.04), septic shock (AHR = 5.7, 95% CI = 1.6-20.3, P = 0.007), and dysfunction of three or more organs (AHR = 2.9, 95% CI = 1.1-7.3, P = 0.03) increased the risk of in-hospital mortality. Adding aggregate organ dysfunction to the multivariate equation that included the sepsis category statistically significantly improved the model, but the opposite did not. Predictors of mortality were easily measurable and could be used to risk stratify critically ill patients in resource-constrained settings.
UPIM was a research study conducted for 7 months in 2015 by Principal Investigators Dr. Joseph Ngonzi (MUST OB/GYN) and Dr. Lisa Bebell (MGH Infectious Diseases).

On February 8-10, Prof Susan Rosser, Prof Alistair Elfick and Dr Liz Fletcher attended the AGM of the MUII-Plus DELTAS programme held in Entebbe, Uganda, at the Uganda Virus Research Institute.. The MUII-Plus programme is well established and is directed largely to exploring the aetiology and pathology of infectious diseases pertinent to Sub Saharan Africa. The research initiative is funded by the Wellcome Trust, UK Aid and NEPAD and its long-term vision is to train African leaders in bioinformatics, immunity and infectious diseases, which it is doing admirably well.. Over three days, the Edinburgh team got a great insight of endemic diseases such as parasitic infections (Schistosomiasis, Trypanosomiasis), tuberculosis and HIV, which continue to be the source of major sources of ill health in Uganda and Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) more widely. An analysis of the ongoing research and areas of unmet needs will follow.. On the first day of the event, the Centre team presented to ,50 delegates on what ...
Since the World Health Organization reported an Ebola outbreak in Uganda on Saturday, the number of cases has risen to 36 from 20. The cases remain limited to a small area in western Uganda. An international team is on the scene to identify the source and contain the outbreak.
By bus=== Uganda has a decent public bus system, having two classes of buses. The "taxis" (also called "matatus") are actually minibuses or commuter vans, which run fixed routes. Both methods of travel are reasonable and cheap between major centres, and is a good choice for backpackers with time, but many companies do not run on a reliable schedule. Depending on the distance you wish to cover and your destination, your route may be better served by a taxi/mutatu or a bus. Bus connections are more often found with Western & Northern Uganda, while Eastern Uganda is more commonly served by taxis. Most routes are served by several companies that compete for customers. Prices often vary by company, with more reputable bus companies charging more for the same route (see more on Bus companies below). Most mutatus/buses leave only once they are full, so if youre at at one of the terminal destinations and wish to avoid waiting, you may want to check how many passengers are on the bus before buying a ...
Mas Jaya and Vicki Priya are returning to Uganda this August to visit River Fund projects there and to also conduct a workshop for our top Trainers. These are peer educators and graduates of our program for HIV/AIDS Long Term Survival Skills, which we started in 2005. Our Trainers each lead a small group of women and men. They teach HIV/AIDS prevention, general health and nutrition, stress management, and other skills in rural communities. They also provide peer counseling.. Some groups work on income-generating projects for their communities. Two of the groups work specifically to educate sex workers and provide condoms at two international border points. It has been several years since we have conducted a workshop, and we and the women we serve in Uganda are very excited.. We will be visiting nursery and elementary schools that we support as well as meeting many of the 600 children we send to school. We will also meet with all of the small groups throughout rural Eastern Uganda that we ...
HIV is the leading risk factor for the development of tuberculosis disease. At the same time, tuberculosis is the leading cause of death among people living with HIV. In a country like Uganda where the TB burden is so huge (the community has with TB germs in the air) and HIV/AIDS that is depressing the immunity of persons with HIV, then chances of picking TB are high. Dr Anna Nakanwagi Mukwaya, the Chief of Party in Uganda for the International Union against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) said: "In countries where TB and HIV services are under the same roof things are much better. For example in Zimbabwe these services are given under the same roof. Patients are not referred. If you go to Benin, it is the same thing. In Uganda, because our services have been structured separately, it takes time. When it comes to health workers, very few in HIV know how to give TB care and in TB it is the same situation. Uganda needs to get resources and ensure that all health workers in HIV care know ...

Uganda is a landlocked country astride the equator, about 800 kilometers inland from the Indian Ocean. It lies on the northwestern shores of Lake Victoria, extending from 1 south to 4 north latitude and 30 to 35 east longitude. Uganda is bordered by Tanzania and Rwanda to the south, Zaire to the west, Sudan to the north, and Kenya to the east. With a land surface of 241,139 square kilometers (roughly twice the size of the state of Pennsylvania), Uganda occupies most of the Lake Victoria Basin, which was formed by the geological shifts that created the Rift Valley during the Pleistocene era. The Sese Islands and other small islands in Lake Victoria also lie within Ugandas borders.. Land Use ...
The American National Standards Institute, through its public-private partnership with USAID called the Standards Alliance, organized an ethanol standards workshop in Kampala, Uganda on November 15. The Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) served as co-host for the workshop, while ASTM International and POET served as co-sponsors and co-organizers. The one-day workshop enabled a technical exchange on the ASTM International standard for ethanol as a home cooking and appliance fuel. In East Africa, the household cooking sector is the main consumer of solid biomass, representing the largest share of final energy consumption in the region. In Uganda, biomass fuels account for more than 91 percent of all energy use, and 97 percent of the population uses solid fuels for cooking.. While traditional biomass fuels such as wood and crop residue are renewable in principle, the current level of usage is not sustainable and contributes to massive deforestation and negative health impacts. In 2012, an ...

There shall be the flag of the Party of tricolour: Black (for African Personality), Red (for human equality and Brotherhood) and Blue (for Peace and Justice). The Party tricolour flag shall be in horizontal form with Black on top, Red in the middle, followed by the Blue. The website contains a detailed (very interesting but probably a bit UPC-oriented) history of UPC and Uganda, from which I have extracted the most relevant data: UPC was formed on 9 Mar 1960, and led the Ugandan government at independence (9 Oct 1962). The party leader and Prime Minister, Milton Obote, was overthrown by Idi Amin Dada on 25 Jun 1971. In 1979, Amin was overthrown by Uganda National Liberation Front (UNLF). Obote came back to Uganda on 27 May 1980 and UPC came back to power in Dec 1980. In Jul 1985, Obote was again overthrown by a military junta, later replaced by NRM (National Resistance Movement) led by current President Yoweri Museveni. In 1966, Obote and UPC wrote a new Constitution which abolished the Kingdom ...
Mercy Corps has been working in Uganda since 2006. In the aftermath of a generation-long civil war that claimed thousands of lives and displaced millions more, Uganda is finally healing. But population growth is straining resources and services in a country that still has a long way to go. With farmland not producing at capacity, food is in short supply and malnutrition is common. Good quality seeds are scarce in local markets, keeping yields low. Recurring climate shocks, including drought and flooding, have further reduced harvests. Continuing inequalities in the distribution of income and the treatment of women have contributed to high poverty rates, poor health and disparities in education and opportunity. While stable itself, some of Ugandas neighbors are not. Every day, a staggering number of South Sudanese refugees arrive at Ugandas northern border in search of safety. Over the past months, their numbers have dramatically increased, with an average of more than 2,000 daily arrivals. ...

MTN Uganda Chief Executive, Wim Vanhelleputte has advised Uganda to embrace e-banking, mobile banking and related technology and aid the transformation from a cash-reliant to a cashless economy.. His call comes as neighboring countries; Rwanda and Kenya are making strides towards promoting cashless economies through the development of strong digital platforms. Rwanda for instance envisions becoming a cashless economy by 2020; with all government financial transactions done electronically and via mobile phones.. India equally has plans to fully move to a cashless economy. Indias Finance minister recently proposed a slew of measures to hasten Indias movement to a cashless economy. Among them tax breaks for the creation of a cashless infrastructure, greater usage of non-cash modes of payments.. In Uganda, Vanhelleputte says the introduction of mobile money was in a way aimed at introducing a digital cashless economy but that is not working as expected. He says the type of mobile money in Uganda ...
Worldwide efforts have increased to develop rapid point-of-care Ebola tests as the deadly outbreak in West Africa has brought this disease to the forefront of international consciousness. Most recently, Luminex Corporation announced that the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) Diagnostics Division is developing rapid diagnostics for the Ebola virus using Luminexs xMAP technology. Other organizations working to develop similar tests include Corgenix Medical Corporation and Ugandas Makerere University.
In the next 30 years, Uganda envisions a transformation from a peasant to a modern and prosperous society, with a per capita GDP of USD 9,500 by 2040 as detailed in ision 2040. Vision 2040 also acknowledges that the only single factor that will stop Uganda from attaining middle income status is the population growth rate, characterized by a young age structure and consequent high child dependency burden. Uganda has therefore pronounced itself onharnessing the demographic dividend, as a key strategy to achieving Vision 2040.. ...

Until Dr Anna Nakanwagi went to work with Ugandas National TB and Leprosy Programme (NTLP) as a public health graduate student, she was not very interested in tuberculosis. As a field, she thought of TB as "a small thing, a narrow place." But, at the NTLP, she discovered that TB control entailed understanding not only the clinical management of the disease, but also public health issues at every level from the individual patient to the health system as a whole. Since then, she says, she has never left the TB world.. A native of Uganda who completed both her medical training and MPH there, Nakanwagi went to work for the World Health Organization in 2004 as a National Professional Officer in TB-HIV. "In Uganda at that time, 6.4 percent of the general population was HIV positive, but the link between TB and HIV was just beginning to be understood," she says.. Her first assignment was to help develop national guidelines for TB-HIV collaborative activities and integrated services, so she quickly ...

Downloadable! We use a multinominal logit model to examine the determinants of plot abandonment (unintentional fallows) and long fallows (intentional fallows) in order to propose policy interventions that lead to optimal and sustainable management of land use systems in Kigezi highlands. Household factors such as age, and post primary education positively influenced farmers decision to abandon plots. Therefore, more fallows and abandoned terraces were common with older farmers compared to younger ones. However, farm size and household type had no significant influence on abandonment of plots. Plot variables such as slope and plot distance had the expected positive signs while soil fertility had a significant negative sign as predicted. Two types of interventions are recommended. Those aimed at highly cultivable, moderate slopes and those aimed at uncultivable and fragile areas. For the former, the probability of adoption and intensity of use of appropriate agrobased interventions is likely to be very

Kampala, 8 November 2004 - Recent retrospective mortality surveys conducted by the international medical relief organization Doctors Without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) highlight the immense suffering and the critical nature of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Northern Uganda. According to MSF, the severity of the crisis requires urgent action from the international community and aid organizations.
A qualitative study was undertaken to attempt to understand reasons for the delayed diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) amongst Ugandan women and to describe the nature of TB stigma and its effects in Uganda. Twelve women were interviewed. Participants were selected on the basis that they had smear-positive TB and had delayed consulting healthcare services for ≥30 days. Semi-structured interviews were conducted and analysed using thematic content analysis. The study showed that the main reason for delayed diagnosis amongst women interviewed was a lack of recognition of symptoms. This may be due to low levels of TB awareness in the community. The study also showed that TB is stigmatised in Uganda, mainly due to associations with HIV. Many participants believed that TB only exists with HIV and that TB causes HIV tests to appear negative even for HIV-infected people. Health education programmes would be helpful to improve the understanding of TB and to combat harmful beliefs about TB and HIV in the ...

Ugandas hope of becoming East Africas biggest oil producer have been hampered by the governments inability to attract investors to build a planned oil refinery. RT Global Resources, a Russian and South Korean consortium, which had won the bid early 2016 has since reneged on the agreement to fund the 30,000 barrels a day refinery in the western district of Hoima where oil was discovered almost a decade ago. According to the Ministry of Energy of Communications Specialist Ibrahim Kasita, RT Global Resources was to finance 60% of the estimated $6bn needed for the project, leaving the Ugandan government to provide 30%, while Tanzania was to raise 10%.. However, the Ugandan government was unable to raise its share of the required capital because of fiscal challenges facing the East African country. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund recently withdrew budgetary support to Uganda cuts to government expenditure. The consortium withdrew after Uganda and Tanzania did not make their ...

The Jerusalem Post, May 28, 2003. BUSHS MIDDLE EAST Uganda Plan. By Michael Freund. As a result of this past Sundays vote in the Israeli cabinet, Zionism now finds itself confronting the gravest identity crisis it has known in the past century.. Not since 1903, when the Sixth Zionist Congress indicated a willingness to consider Great Britains proposal to create a Jewish national home in Uganda, has the movement come so perilously close to abandoning its ideological moorings.. Indeed, there is a lot of similarity between the Ugandan roadmap and its Palestinian equivalent, and the look at the former provides an intriguing clue as to how best to defeat the latter.. The Uganda plan was born precisely 100 years ago this past summer, when Theodor Herzl, father of political Zionism, was summoned to London for a meeting with British Colonial Secretary Joseph Chamberlain. Chamberlain had just returned from a visit to Africa, and told Herzl that while he was there, I saw a country for you: Uganda. ...
