Speaking during the function, Udo Weber asked government and the private health service providers to put in place effective health care systems for the better service of the people.

Weber also called for public private partnerships in the health sector as one strategy to make effective health services accessible to all.

Weber further called on the National Medical Stores to ensure efficiency and transparency in the distribution of health logistics. He also called on government and faith-based health institutions to put in place comprehensive programmes for more advanced training of their staff.

The Metropolitan Archbishop of Kampala, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, explained that the Church’s involvement in the health sector was intended to further the holistic ministry of Jesus Christ, who fed the hungry, healed the sick and also raised people from the dead, further to preaching the gospel.

The Executive Director of the Hospital, Dr. Andrew Ssekitooleko said that the hospital’s management had the plan to enhance strategic partnerships, visionary leadership, professional management, ICT systems and a patient-centered approach to service.
