Patients at Butabika National Mental Referral Hospital are being mistreated and subjected to unnecessary use of chemical restraint, a new report has revealed. Titled: “Breaking point,” the report by the Mental Disability Advocacy Centre (MDAC), an international non-governmental organisation paints a bleak picture of the a facility the lawmakers once extoled as ‘cleanest’ in the country.

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.
