People's Health Movement

Denis Joseph Bukenya is Coordinator of the People's Health Movement, Uganda Chapter, and HURIC, Human Rights Research Documentation Center in Uganda. Professional interests: The right to Health and Health for All. Currently in Uganda we are seeking the support of the government to the realization of Universal Health Coverage. We are busy suggesting options of funding to attain this by government and professionally I am adjudicating for the issues of Human Resources for Health and this is a worldwide campaign by the People's Health Movement, to see that community health workers are accorded recognition by the government. This in effect means that they need to be made recruited and remunerated by government, since they are structurally recognized by many government establishments.
