According to World Bank assessment report November 19, 2013 on Quality of Uganda’s Education and Health services, Uganda has made progress on maternal health but there remain gaps despite record investment over the past years. Uganda’s health care performance is still ranked as one of the worst however, there is a decline on Infant Mortality rate from 54 deaths per 1000 live birth in 2011 to 43 deaths per 1000 live births in 2016 according to Uganda Bureau of Statistics ( UBOS) Indicator report for the sixth Demographic and Health Survey 2016.Today a major public complaint about Uganda’s health system is that there are always limited drugs in government run hospitals, shortage of trained health workers, absenteeism of health workers, and inadequate health facilities   among others.

Question.
