As Luweero District authorities prepare to host the National Safe Motherhood Day on October 17, the health department in the area has been hampered by lack of facilities to handle complications during delivery.
The district deputy health officer and the in charge of Kasana Health Centre IV, Dr Agaba Byamukama, told Daily Monitor that while the national statistics on safe motherhood indicate 435 deaths out of 100,000 mothers in the country, Luweero has limited facilities which has encouraged more referral cases to distant health units.
“We refer about 30 cases with birth complications to other health centres due to limited facilities and inadequate supplies such as cotton wool and anaesthetic drugs for use in the theatre,” Dr Agaba said. The district in conjunction with the Ministry of Health is organising community outreaches to extend immunisation and health care services for both mothers and babies ahead of the celebrations.
According to Dr Agaba, a health fair and a convention on safe motherhood will be conducted to attract resource persons from health partners and international health bodies.
About 180 mothers deliver at Kasana Health Centre while a total of 350 mothers report for the Prevention of Mother-to-Child HIV/Aids Transmissions services at the antenatal clinic every month but the centre has only 15 beds for mothers in the wards.

  5. One thing I’ve noticed is there are plenty of fallacies regarding the banking companies intentions if talking about foreclosed. One myth in particular is the bank would like your house. The financial institution wants your hard earned money, not your own home. They want the cash they lent you having interest. Staying away from the bank is only going to draw some sort of foreclosed summary.

  9. Thanks for expressing your ideas on this blog. Additionally, a misconception regarding the banking companies intentions any time talking about foreclosures is that the traditional bank will not take my repayments. There is a degree of time in which the bank requires payments here and there. If you are too deep inside the hole, they’re going to commonly require that you pay the payment in whole. However, that doesn’t mean that they will not take any sort of repayments at all. In the event you and the lender can manage to work some thing out, this foreclosure process may stop. However, should you continue to skip payments in the new program, the foreclosures process can just pick up where it left off.
