Nurses and midwives have complained about the heavy workload due to the inadequate staffing which has left one nurse or midwife to work on close to 3000 patients per day.

 

They raised the concern during a three-day event to celebrate nurses in the country at Namboole stadium.

 

Janet Obuni, the president of Uganda nurses and midwives union tasked government to prioritize nursing workforce since it’s close to the communities.

 

Over 300 midwives and nurses from across the country are taking part in the event.
