Abim: Upgrade of Kanu health center II to III commences

(Last Updated On: 6 April 2023)

Church of Uganda’s North Karamoja diocese has kick-started the process of upgrading Kanu health center II, a church-founded health facility to health center III.

During an orientation meeting of Rt. Rev Simon Akol Aisu, the Bishop of the North Karamoja diocese, and Rev John Calvin Eretu, the health coordinator of the diocese revealed that the diocese has already started the process to ensure that the health center is upgraded.

According to him, the Uganda Protestant Medical Bureau (UPMB) has already approved the upgrade to health center III.

“It is upon the diocese to work together with the district technical team to complete the documentation and send it to the district council for approval,” Rev Eretu told the Bishop.

It is upon the approval by the council that the council resolution will be sent to the Ministry of Health for the completion of the process, he added.

Rev. Calvin now appeals for cooperation from the district to make the process successful.

Charles Omugetum, the principal assistant secretary of Abim district who was representing the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), welcomed the idea and asked the diocese to speed up the paperwork so that the health center is upgraded.

North Karamoja diocese has two more health facilities, Kiru health center II whose performance has dwindled, and Rackoko health center II which has since collapsed.
