East Africa to get single health policy

24 March 2015, 10:18 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Plans are in advanced stages to enable all east African countries including Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi  to get a single health policy.

Addressing a press conference Monday in Kampala, the deputy Secretary General for the EAC, Jessica Eriyo mentions that with the need to have better and streamlined health sectors for member states, the secretariat is coming up with a single regional health policy.

''In the soon-coming regional health conference, the draft policy might be approved and will then be moved further steps for adoption," he said.

According to Eriyo, the draft policy is well structured and looking at health structures in the region and geared at harmonizing all health policies of various regional member states. It will also focus on centers of excellence for health, funding for the sector and reporting in the region among others.

She also revealed that the region is in the process of setting up the transport corridor project that will see partner states constructing hospitals along the region’s transport corridors that will facilitate health service provision of the masses and transporters.

In a related development, the region is soon setting up a research center for EAC where all health and scientific discoveries will be carried out for the good of the region.
