May 3rd 2018, Makerere University School of Public Health (MakSPH), under the ‘Supporting Policy Engagement for Evidence-based Decisions (SPEED)’ launched a book; ‘Universal Health Coverage in Uganda: Looking Back and Forward to Speed up the Progress’. Launched by Mr. Thomas Tiedemann, Acting Head of Cooperation at the EU Delegation in Uganda and the Minister of State for Health General Duties-Honourable Sarah Opendi, the over 450-page book provides insights to what has been done over the last 15 years, what the challenges are and the opportunities that can support speeding up progress in advancing universal health coverage in Uganda. The book is a product of the three-year EU-funded SPEED project.
The book was edited by MakSPH’s own Associate Professor Freddie Ssengooba, Dr. Suzanne N. Kiwanuka, Associate Professor Elizeus Rutebemberwa and Dr. Elizabeth Ekirapa-Kiracho.
