The newly opened Mulago Specialized Women and Neonatal Hospital is in need of over 40 billion if it’s to operate normally.
The new fully-equipped facility has a 450 beds capacity— with a 60-bed unit for the private wing.
Speaking before parliament yesterday, the minister of Health Dr Jane Ruth Aceng said that the ministry hopes to collect 28 billion shillings from non-tax revenue, with about 7 billion expected from a supplementary.
She said that this hospital is ready and sound, although facilitation remains a challenge.
