• Uganda's Health Pyramid - People & Power

    Living in a poor country with one of the worst doctor-patient ratios in the world - about one for every 24,000 people - it's perhaps no surprise that many Ugandans are tempted by alternative remedies, even though there's often little evidence to support the claims made about their efficacy in treating or preventing disease. But the phenomenon does beg many questions, not least of which are who is really benefiting from the sale of these products and how exactly are they marketed? We'd heard reports about one particularly controversial business, a complex multi-level marketing scheme run in Uganda under the aegis of a Chinese company called Tiens, which produces food supplements. Its products, we'd been told, were being inappropriately sold as medications - in some cases for very serious ...

  • Modern Day Slavery of Postgraduate Medical Doctors in Uganda (Video by MUK postgraduate doctors)

    The plight of Senior House Officers in Mulago Hospital By Prince Kakungulu Edward Back in 2012, while I was attending to patients in one of the private hospitals in Kampala, a mother walked in at 3:00 am with her child who had an exacerbation of Asthma (severe allergic airway disease). She requested to see a pediatrician (a specialist doctor for babies and children), to her dismay there was none at that time and out of frustration she asked, “But how are these specialists made?” Specialist doctors in the making are referred to as Senior House Officers here in Uganda (and in Ireland, and formerly in the UK and other countries whose education systems are similar to the UK)while in the US they are called Medical residents.

    Hip-hop and superstition go together like gin 'n' juice, with Jay-Z's links to the the Illuminati being just the latest slice of urban mythology. But if you're a striving hip-hop star in Uganda, you probably don't have that kind of illicit, world-bending power at your disposal. But you may have a local witch doctor who can guarantee your fame by similarly shady means. Hotman Predator wants to be a superstar, so naturally his producer tells him to grab a chicken and seek out a Voodoo ritual. The rest could be music history, maybe.

  • The Child Sacrifice Business in Uganda

    The villages and farming communities that surround Uganda's capital, Kampala, are gripped by fear. Schoolchildren are closely watched by teachers and parents as they make their way home from school. In playgrounds and on the roadside are posters warning of the danger of abduction by witch doctors for the purpose of child sacrifice. The ritual, which some believe brings wealth and good health, was almost unheard of in the country until around three years ago, but it has re-emerged, seemingly alongside a boom in the country's economy. The BBC's Chris Rogers reports that many cases of child sacrifice in Uganda are not being followed up by the police and little is being done to protect potential victims.

We'd heard reports about one particularly controversial business, a complex multi-level marketing scheme run in Uganda under the aegis of a Chinese company called Tiens, which produces food supplements. Its products, we'd been told, were being inappropriately sold as medications - in some cases for very serious diseases. We had also heard disturbing claims that its sales representatives, or "distributors" as they are known, were being invited to invest large sums of money in Tiens products, when in reality there was little chance of most of them ever making the kind of dazzling returns that the company promised. So we sent a filmmaking team and Ugandan reporter Halima Athumani to investigate further. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

She requested to see a pediatrician (a specialist doctor for babies and children), to her dismay there was none at that time and out of frustration she asked, “But how are these specialists made?” Specialist doctors in the making are referred to as Senior House Officers here in Uganda (and in Ireland, and formerly in the UK and other countries whose education systems are similar to the UK)while in the US they are called Medical residents. They are postgraduate students in a university training to acquire a master’s degree of medicine in any of the many fields that includes Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Medicine, Psychiatry, Ophthalmology, Ear, nose and throat, Anesthesia, Orthopedics, Neurosurgery among others. All Senior House Officers come back to specialize with too much experience in Health care provision and AdministrationPersonally I graduated from Gulu University having trained at Gulu Regional Referral Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital Lacor plus attending community based learning in Anaka Hospital in Amuru District. I completed a year of internship in Hoima Regional Referral Hospital and Jinja Regional referral Hospital before I took on a contract job with Uganda Cancer Institute. At Uganda Cancer Institute we treated all kinds of tumors including Breast cancer and cervical cancer in women, prostate cancer in men and blood cancers known as leukemia in in children. I terminated my contract two years later to join postgraduate training in General Surgery at Makerere University. Many of my colleagues have been District Health Officers and Hospital administrators and some have even completed postgraduate training in other fields such as Business, Law and Public health. Our training is one of apprenticeship, we learn on job, the training is full time, rigorous and we are usually few in each field given the bulk of resources and time it takes to train one Senior House officer. We work 24hrs a day, teach undergraduate medical students, supervise intern doctors, clinical officers, Medical officers and we report to the consultants. Part of my work is to understand the ailment of a patient, provide emergency treatment that often at times includes cardiorespiratory resuscitation in case the persons heart has stopped, making sure he/she is breathing, provide supplementary oxygen if necessary replace blood and body fluids if insufficient. The next step is to wheel the patient to the operating theatre and to correct that problem that led to a change in the patient’s health. This may require doing a laparotomy (opening up the abdomen), fixing a fracture ( from the many bodaboda accidents, ), drain a blood collection from the skull and the like. In pediatrics the Senior House Officers have the responsibility of saving lives of innocent babies who are brought to the hospital with severe malaria, convulsions , reduced amounts of blood in their bodies (anemia), and those that can hardly breathe either due to allergic airway diseases (asthma) or having swallowed food and it gets logged in the airway or drunk poisonous substances such as paraffin Specialist trainees in obstetrics and gynecology attend to our mothers in labor perform caesarean sections (C-section) and make sure that both mother and baby are safe. Such work is on the hour, even when one is to put down his head for a moment, the phone is never to be off. You can be called upon by the patient, caretakers, relatives, junior doctors and consultants. Suffice it to say We are at the centre of health care delivery, to say the least. There is no room for error.. Beyond Mulago hospital we and our lecturers engage in medical camps to provide free health care to the hard to reach communities. I have been to Kitgum Matidi, Patongo prisions in Pader district, Amuru Health centre, Rukungiri town, Rubuguri in Kisoro District on the border of Uganda and Congo, Mubende, Kiganda and Ntwetwe health centres in Kyankwanzi  for such healthcare camps. At the Kyankwanzi health camp which was the most recent,  we had a Surgical camp and operated on over 300 people. We are soon heading to Kiruhura for yet another camp. Postgraduate training also catapults one to becoming a scholar engaging in research to innovate homemade solutions to address challenges in treating tropical diseases that selectively affect Africans. Such diseases include HIV and HIV associated Cancers, Sickle cell disease,  tunga penetrans also known as jiggers, Buruli ulcers among others. Most of this research is funded by the students themselves. Training can be challenging with many of our colleagues taking twice the duration necessary to complete, a number drops out before completion and some are d
