Authorities in Mitooma decry shortage of drugs in health facilities

Mitooma District Councillors have cracked war on the district health committee for failing to deliver the required information to the ministry which has caused a shortage of drugs in most health facilities within the district.

While appearing in yesterday’s district council meeting held at the district Headquarters, Joy Bagarukayo the district councilor representing workers and Bim Douglas the district councilor representing Mitooma Town council said that most health centers have no medicine which has left patients stranded and helpless.  

The Mitooma district Deputy speaker Greenford Mucunguzi told the council that he got feedback from the ministry of health that the Mitooma district health data is wanting and that could be the biggest reason they take a long time to receive drugs and even get little.  

However, the Mitooma district Chief Administrative Officer Edith Turyasasirwa acknowledged that the district is facing drug stock outs in the majority of government health facilities but was quick to blame it on the National Medical Stores which delays the supply.
