KAMPALA - China-Uganda friendship hospital in Naguru has received a new medical team from China to beef up the facility's human resource gaps.

The group comprises of nine experts in both medical and Chinese traditional medicine fields. It is the 18th medical team to be sent to Uganda since 1983.

The hospital has also received a Chinese equipment technical team, tasked with the maintenance of infrastructure and equipment at the health facility.

“Our staffing levels stand at 83%, so the medical team coming on board will help the hospital operate better,” said Emmanuel Batiibwe, the hospital's director.

He said this at a function to bid farewell to the departing medical team and welcome the new group. This was at the hospital on Wednesday.

The previous medical team was made up of eight experts and had worked at the hospital for the last two years, treating patients and offering outreach medical services to the communities.
