Increased death due to insufficient treatment has been attributed to failure by the patients to go to hospitals but visit only witch doctors.
This was revealed by the Rubanda District Health Officer Dr Abdon Birung while speaking at the ongoing Health camp in Muko Sub County Rubanda district, organized by the Rubanda district Member of Parliament Prossy Akampurira Begumisa in partnership with Marie stops Uganda.
He said that most Ugandans have a habit going to witch doctors whenever they get sick before attending to health facilities for medical checkup which result into death.
He advised Ugandans to desist from attending witch doctors saying that most of them are only conning them to get money.
The Rubanda district Woman Member of Parliament Prosy Akampurira Begumisa Mbabazi, said that she will continue lobbing for annual health camps in the district, so as to discourage people from witch craft.
Akampurira however asked women to always discuss with their husbands before they seek for family planning services, in order to avoid family conflicts.
