Solar System Installation at GeneXpert Health Facilities Improves Tuberculosis Diagnosis


Despite a power surplus in Uganda, the Lango sub-region in Northern Uganda suffers frequent electricity outages, which affect most of the districts in the sub-region. As a result, much of the laboratory equipment at health facilities are non-functional, leading to expensive repairs, high error rates during GeneXpert testing, long turnaround times for test results, and wastage of laboratory materials due to lack of power to run refrigerators. Learn how JSI's Regional Health Integration to Enhance Services – North, Lango supported the region to improve TB diagnosis.
