Butabika National Referral Mental Hospital is one of the unsung medical facilities, if you may, in this country. Here is why. When many fall sick, they run to public hospitals around the country. Mulago hospital, Uganda Cancer Institute and Uganda Heart Institute are some of the health centres many people run to, to receive help.
The acting director of Butabika Hospital has said the facility has insufficient manpower required to attend to the increasing cases of mental illnesses reported on a daily basis.
