Prioritise fight against infant mortality

According to a recent report, 70,000 babies in Uganda die within one month of birth every year. Most of these deaths are a result of poor facilitation of health centres which indicates that a lot is still lacking in the health sector.  In the NRM Manifesto for 2011-2016, the NRM stated that it advocates for health for all Ugandan people and that its policy was to prevent preventable diseases. This is a good policy but what is its use if nothing much is being done to implement it?

At least 48 Senior Four candidates in Mbarara, West Nile, and Luweero districts missed their Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) exams, as their head teachers failed to register them.
