On 7th March 2018, HEPS-Uganda launched a survey report dubbed 'Sexual and Reproductive Health Commodities: Measuring Prices, Availability and Affordability' at Imperial Royale, Kampala.
Coalition for Health Promotion and Social Development (HEPS-Uganda) in collaboration with Health Action International and Ministry of Health have over the years conducted surveys on medicine prices and availability.
HEPS-Uganda conducted an evaluation to assess the impact of the implementation of its project titled “Citizen Engagement to Stop Medicines Stock Outs” in Lira and Kiboga Districts 2014-2016.
Everyday 800 women worldwide will die due to complications related to pregnancy and childbirth that could be prevented by proper health services and 99% of these deaths occur in developing countries.
Access to medicines is a fundamental element of the human right to the highest attainable standard of health and is essential for saving lives and improving health outcomes.
