This will be the fifth such gathering, with the last conference held on 29th August to the 31st of the same at the Kampala Serena hotel. It’s overiding theme — “Transforming Health Care through leadership, Innovation and Accountability” was the subject of discussion.
This sort of gathering is more or less a large ‘group discussion’ of various stakeholders — health actors, clients, citizens, educational institutions, providers (private and public), pharmaceuticals, legislators — in the provision of health care in the country.
With 2017’s conference bringing together an attendence in the excess of 450 participants — according to Makerere University School of Public Health Monitoring and Evaluation Techical Support (METS) — and witnessing the launch of the MoH’s documments on (1) Service Standards, and (2) Service delivery standards and maternal and perinatal death surveillance and responce; we can only wait to see what becomes of December’s meet.
