This was revealed by State Minister of Health Sarah Opendi while appearing before the Parliamentary Health Committee this afternoon.

Opendi told Parliament's health committee that the available money will only cater for essential hospital supplies.

 

The President of Uganda Medical Association Dr.Ekwaro Obuku warned that the fraternity could resume the strike later this month if their salaries are not improved.

Last month, doctors laid down their tools demanding for a salary increment.

After a series of negotiations, the doctors got back to work after commitment from government that their remuneration would be improved.

 

The Doctors demand that the least paid should earn at least 5 million shs and senior consultants 45 m shillings per month.
