Guardian Examines Drugs Access in Uganda
August 20, 2009
The Guardian examines the public's access to drugs in Uganda. It profiles the situation in the town of Katine, where "Coke is everywhere," but "[e]ssential medicines, many of them paid for by governments ... are not." The article includes details about the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria's temporary suspension of funds and other conditions that have contributed to the shortage of drugs in the country (Boseley, 8/20).
