The transformation of Mulago Hospital is synonymous with the country’s transformation. In 1965, when I first came to Mulago, I had escorted my sister who had suffered a polio attack. The hospital today is much more different from that of 1965, ”said Museveni.

Health workers should be systematic in their plans. Don’t “kwekubagiza” (be full of regrets). It is possible to accomplish much even with meagre resources if you are committed and strategic. It is how the NRA, despite minimal resources, won the Bush War.

I have been told many tests can be done at this facility. It is something I have always urged administrators here to develop. With tests, Ugandans will be able to prevent diseases, which is the biggest component of healthcare,”he added.

The philosophy should be prevention. We should not have people admitted here over preventable diseases. This facility should only be for conditions that cannot be prevented like some of the maternity-related complications.

Ministry officials should know this is a speciality hospital, predominantly for referral. This means lower units will have to improve their services and be well equipped. If this happens, it will reduce congestion at Mulago. The government though will continue building more specialized hospitals.

About remuneration of health workers, the government will continue to improve their salaries so that we check brain drain. We shall try to match regional and international market rates, starting with scientists first and then other professions later.
