With the support from the National Democratic Institute and Radio Connect Uganda, the SPEED team comprised of Dr. Elizabeth Ekirapa-Kiracho and Dr. Aloysius Ssennyonjo provided technical insights on the proposed National Health Insurance scheme. This was in the form of engaging in stakeholders meeting and debates on the proposed National Health Insurance (NHI) scheme in Uganda. Various debates were held at both national and regional levels as well as conducting direct media engagements on radio talk shows on the proposed scheme. The debates sought to get people’s views on the proposed scheme and to inform leaders on the health needs of the citizens.
Among the engagements were; a public debate on the NHI bill held at Makerere University Business School, regional meetings held in Gulu University for the northern region of Uganda and the final engagement held at Mbarara University of Science and Technology in western Uganda.
