Situated in central east Africa, Uganda is a landlocked country with a developing economy revolving around on coffee, tea and fish exports. The equatorial landscape attracts a number of tourists each year, especially those interested in wildlife. In 2013 it’s believed the industry is worth the US $1.9 billion and has been productive in combatting poverty. Although Uganda is technically landlocked, it borders Lake Victoria, which is the largest tropical lake in the world and a second largest freshwater lake.
Healthcare in Uganda
Although the government has been productive in initiating healthcare reform in recent years, healthcare remains poor in Uganda due to supposed internal corruption. While there are a number of medical clinics in the country, they are poorly equipped and not prepared to treat more serious emergencies.
