Members of Parliament have tasked government to improve service delivery at health centre IIIs and IVs if the country is to achieve better health coverage for all Ugandans.
The legislators are concerned that following the closure of health centre 11s, there has not been any significant improvement in services especially in the sub-counties and all other levels.
Government adopted the policy to close down health 11s as a measure to scale up service delivery at other levels but this has not been achieved as service delivery remains stagnating in some areas.
Mps Abbas Agaba, Herbert Kinobere, and Spellanza Baguma note that there is need to scale up funding and capacity building if the country is to sustainably address existing health gaps.
They made the remarks during a health improvement for Women, Children and adolescents workshop organized by the Network of African Ministers and parliamentarians at Speke resort Munyonyo.
