China sends medical aid to Uganda
BEIJING/KAMPALA, August 10, 2018 (MENA) - China delivered medical aid to the Chinese-Ugandan friendship hospital in Uganda's capital, Kampala, Chinese media reported on Friday.
Chinese Ambassador to Uganda Zheng Zhu Qiang gave the aid worth of $70,000 to Ugandan Health Minister Jane Ruth Aceng.
Cooperation in the field of public health is a major part of the 10 African-Chinese cooperation plans, announced at a forum on cooperation between China and Africa in Johannesburg in 2015, the Chinese ambassador said.
The aid will effectively contribute to end pharmaceutical shortage at the Ugandan hospital, he added.
