Agondua, however, said the challenge has been sorted and that they have so far started clearing the backlog. “By Friday, we will start issuing the transcripts for different health training institutions,” he said.

The Uganda Allied Health Examinations Board board (UAHEB) has promised to issue the transcripts for the students who have been finishing their studies from different health training institutions in the past two years. 
The acting executive secretary for the Uganda Allied Health Examinations Board (UAHEB) Joseph Agondua on Tuesday said they have got a technical fault which hindered the processing of the transcripts for the past two years.
Agondua, however, said the challenge has been sorted and that they have so far started clearing the backlog. “By Friday, we will start issuing the transcripts for different health training institutions,” he said.
He was responding to the deputy director of the St. Elizabeth’s Institute of Health Professionals at Mukono during their third graduation ceremony which had 300 students passed out with certificates and diplomas in different disciplines.
They included medical laboratory technics, clinical medicine, and community health, medical laboratory technology, and pharmacy. Musoke had earlier asked the officials in UAHEB to help the students who have graduated for the past two years get their transcripts adding they had been jobless as the employers including the government entities had denied them job opportunities due to lack of education credentials.
The registrar Allied Health Professionals’ Council, Patrick Mpiima Kibirango who graced the graduation asked the graduands to think of upgrading in the nearby future. Mpiima said unlike other professionals, the health practitioners have got a lot of employment opportunities awaiting them.
The institution director, Raymond Paul Ssebaggala said they have so far marked 15 years in the system and seen over thousands of students getting through into the employment sector.
