UNHCR Commissions Inpatient Ward at Bubukwanga HC III

The facility was constructed at a cost of Shillings 385 million. The Health Center III, which serves patients mainly from the sub-counties of Bubukwanga, Ntotoro, Kirumya, and Tokwe has been overstretched of late by the increasing numbers of patients from the transit camp.

 The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has commissioned an inpatient department (IPD) ward at Bubukwanga Health Center III in Bundibugyo district. The aim is to extend good health services to the asylum seekers at Bubukwanga transit camp.

The facility was constructed at a cost of Shs. 385 million. The Health Center III, which serves patients mainly from the sub-counties of Bubukwanga, Ntotoro, Kirumya, and Tokwe has been overstretched of late by the increasing numbers of patients from the transit camp. The asylum seekers are primarily from the neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Despite the relative peace in their country, about 200 asylum seekers are still at the camp. 

While handing over the IPD ward to the Bundibugyo district local government, Jason Hepps, the Deputy Representative of UNHCR, asked the district leaders to work with the Ministry of Health to ensure that the facility is equipped to the rightful standard of serving the community.

The Bundibugyo district chairperson, Robert Tibakinirwa, applauded UNHCR for the support and pledged that the district will ensure the facility is put to good use.
