Top Ugandan Official Praises Israel for Support of Her Country’s Health System
A top Ugandan government official praised Israel this week for its backing of her country’s health system.
“The collaboration between Israel and Uganda is not limited to medical supplies but has been extended to capacity building, including the ongoing works at the Intensive Care Unit for Mulago National Referral Hospital,” Ugandan Health Minister Dr. Jane Aceng said at the commissioning of a diabetes clinic at Kiboga Hospital, the Daily Monitor reported. “The Israeli medical volunteers have been with us for a long time and we appreciate the support for the health care system.”
Israeli Ambassador to Uganda Noah Gal Gendler said his country would make further contributions to the Ugandan health sector.
“We also hope to scale up medicines supplies,” he stated. “Our medical volunteer teams are committed and are available to boost health service delivery. It is unfortunate that diabetes is not only in Uganda but a global challenge, which has no borders.”
