Improper Diagnosis Leading to Serious Health Complications
Many patients in Uganda are increasingly suffering serious health complications as a result of improper diagnosis.
The Advocacy Officer of Uganda National Health Users/Consumers' Organization, David Mukama attributes this to poor training of health workers.

Mukama says wrong diagnosis has become rampant in health centers because patients are not aware of their rights and fear to report the health workers who might have wrongly diagnosed them.
Stella Semakula tells an ordeal of her nine-month-old baby whose legs have a problem but was not helped by the diagnosis from three different doctors.
Stella is not alone. Goretti Naasali tells a story of a friend who lost two children before birth simply because doctors never bothered to diagnose the problem after the first still birth leading to the second one.
