With its 35 million inhabitants, the East African Republic of Uganda is densely populated and at the same time one of the poorest countries in the world. There are 8 physicians per 100,000 inhabitants in the country, with the main focus being on medical care in Kampala, the capital.
Uganda still has a high infant mortality rate of about 14%.
Just over half of people have access to drinking water and only about 40% to sanitation.
Medical care in the rural area is still a challenge.
Despite all the problems, Uganda is itself the target of many refugees from South Sudan, Congo and Rwanda.
