National Medical Stores (NMS) has commenced construction of a new $7.6m (about Shs 27bn) warehouse to cope with the increase in drug stocks and requisitions. Expected to be completed in June 2019, the new warehouse located in Kajjansi, Wakiso, will complement NMS’ main Entebbe warehouse. Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda hailed support from Global Fund and Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) for providing funds for the construction of the facility.

“The construction of this warehouse has been long overdue and we commend our development partners in strengthening and supporting Uganda’s health programmes”, he said.
