    Parliament Speaker Rebecca Kadaga has called a motion to discuss the quality of health for people living in Uganda. She also called for increased budget allocation to the health sector.

    Speaker Kadaga spoke this during a meeting of Network of African parliamentary committees of health; which was held at Speke Resort munyonyo last week under the theme; ” building the capacity of African policy makers for Reproductive health and family planning : challenges and opportunities for parliaments to enhance Reproductive Health and family planning”.
    Much as the international community agreed to an ambitious new development frame work dubbed “sustainable development goals” that would end poverty by 2030 and universally promote shared prosperity and social development, the road to achieving this goal is still a mystery. The health status of most people in Africa continues to be a matter of concern”, said Kadaga.

    She further said; the morbidity and mortality levels; especially of children and women remain unacceptably high. “Access to quality services is still limited and women in particular, face increased health risks from unplanned pregnancies and limited birth spacing”, she added.

    She in addition said; it is notable that many governments in Africa have committed themselves to sexual and reproductive Health and Child rights in regional and international agreements, yet implementation of these commitments remain uneven.
