We Are Ready To Work With You – NDA To Buganda

The National Drug Authority has stated that it is ready to work with Buganda. The NDA officials expressed this interest during a meeting with Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga at Bulange, Mengo.

NDA asked Buganda to pioneer the fight against drug hawking and drug misuse in the kingdom. Dr. David Nahamya, the secretary of NDA appreciated Buganda for their help.

“I extend our sincere appreciation to you, katikkiro and the entire Buganda Kingdom for this opportunity to meet and discuss how NDA and Buganda Kingdom can corroborate to protect the health of our people.”

“This gives assurance that in case people get a problem from use of a particular drug, we can be able to trace it from where it entered the market or where it was sold from. This is why it important that any drug, conventional or herbal is approved before it is allowed on to the market,” he added.

Nahamya says NDA recognizes Buganda as one of the biggest support system. This is also why they approached them for this cause.

“This is why we would like to partner with you. This will address some of the challenges we face such as irrational drug use, drug and substance abuse. Drug hawking, unauthorised herbal medicine with unethical drug promotions among others. These all threaten public health,” he said.
