The Health Ministry says it will install tracking devices in all ambulances to ensure efficiency in services.
Speaking yesterday at the handover ceremony of an 230 million shilling advanced ambulance for the Malaba district border port health, the Commissioner Emergency Medical Services, John Baptist Waniaye Nambohe said the devices will help the Ministry track the movements of the ambulances, fuel consumption and general efficiency.
The Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) in collaboration with the European Union (EU) and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) handed over the ambulance with an Intensive Care Unit to the Ministry of Health of Uganda.
Waniaye says the tracking will be through GPS support provided by an Indian company whose procurement company has started.
