The Ministry of Health last week handed over seven ambulances to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) in regard to activities of the Mulago-KCCA project.
The ambulances are aimed at ensuring effective delivery of health services to the public.
KCCA will take charge of ambulance services besides any other related duties like managing the ambulance staff and maintaining the vehicles.
According to the acting deputy director, KCCA Juliet Namuddu Nambi, “the concept of emergency medical services in the city is a good idea because it’s going to save the lives of our people,” she said.
The Under Secretary (Head Finance and Administration) in the ministry of Health, Ronald Ssegawa
Gyagenda emphasised the need for stakeholders to work together working together (KCCA, Police, Political leadership,
press and public).
“I want to encourage everybody to work together to improve healthy living. That is our commitment as ministry leadership. If we avoid irresponsibility, avoiding wastage of resources and utilise the little we have to achieve more, we shall deliver satisfying services to the public,” he noted.
