SOS Stakeholders and Local Leaders visit Lwala Hospital
On the 15th January, 2010 a team of stakeholders led by Dr. Abbas Kakembo, who is the Head of the Sleeping sickness control program within the Ministry of Health working very closely with the SOS stakeholders, took time to tour Lwala hospital and visit all the patients.
Even if a large number of cases were late stage and thus not
recently infected, the resurgence in admitted patients and the
large number of young people among these patients warranted renewed
focus on the efforts to control sleeping sickness in the Dokolo and
Dr. Kakembo and Professor Waiswa at Lwala hospital.
