Stakeholders during the launch of the Uganda Blue Print for Innovative Healthcare Access Program in Western Uganda

Uganda Cancer Society launches sensitization campaign against non-communicable diseases

In a bid to prevent the spread of non-communicable diseases, Uganda Cancer Society in partnership with Ministry of Health have embarked on a 3-year sensitization and advocacy campaign dubbed the Uganda Blue Print for Innovative Healthcare Access Program in 3 districts in Ankole region.

Speaking to stakeholders at Bushenyi district headquarters, Denis Olodi, the Executive Director of the Uganda Cancer Society said that they are targeting to equip communities with knowledge to fight against non-communicable diseases.

Olodi said that non-communicable diseases are on the rise because people are still considering them as witchcraft and by the time of they are detected, it is too late to be treated with some people even labeling them as diseases of rich people.

Dr Edward Mwesigye, the Bushenyi district health officer urged people to change on their eating habits saying non-communicable like diabetes and cancer are food related illnesses.

This program will run in Bushenyi, Mbarara and Sheema districts.
