RESIDENTS of Nambaale village in Iganga district have received a sh150m clinic. Margaret Kaani, a Ugandan health worker in the US, funded the building of the clinic located on a five-acre piece of land.
â€œMany suffered from easily treatable diseases like malaria, gonorrhea, tetanus and whooping cough but could not get immediate care because of the long distance to Iganga town,â€ Kaani said on Friday.
Dr. David Muwanguzi, the Iganga director of health services, said the directorate was working with Kaani to improve health care in the area.
â€œSome health workers from the district health department have been deployed at the health unit and so far 3,000 patients have been attended to,â€ Muwanguzi said.
