Gulu Regional Referral Hospital launched the five years Government to Government (G2G) activity in Gulu Regional Referral Hospital on the 17th of November 2022 at Bomah Hotel in Gulu City, Uganda. This was done in collaboration with the Acholi sub-region district local governments and Implementing Partners in the region during the 2nd Acholi Sub-Region Annual Health Assembly.
The main reasons for holding the regional health assembly were to:
1. Review the status of the implementation of the previous action plans that were agreed upon during the 1st Health Assembly.
2. Review the performance of the regional district local governments and health partners in FY 2021/2022.
3. Propose mitigation measures for key health sector performance bottlenecks during the year under review.
4. Share lessons & best practices, and also establish networks with partners that are allies for better health services.
5. Advocate for increased support towards health service delivery in the region.
The Chief Guest during the launch was the Minister of Health who was represented by Mr. Chris Mugarura; the Assistant Commissioner in charge of the Health Policy and Sector Planning Division at the Health Ministry. The Minister lauded the planners of the regional health assembly saying it’s an avenue to enlist the help of decision-makers and funders in order to improve access to healthcare within the region. Mugarura however also said that whereas the country made great strides in bringing services nearer to the people, the quality still remains low arguing that there is a need to shift focus on sharing knowledge on evidence-based strategies.
The second Annual Regional Health Assembly convened under the theme “Invigorating Health Promotion and Disease Prevention: My Role, Your Role, Our Role” attracted over 400 leaders in various capacities from Acholi Sub-region and beyond.
