The hard to reach Kapchorwa district in eastern Uganda is hit by a shortage of doctors and other medical staff creating a high patient to doctor ratio that has hindered service delivery.
The long queues at the district hospital have forced patients to resist referrals to Mbale regional referral hospital – preferring to die in the hands of their loved ones back home.
