Worship House lead Pastor Wilson Bugembe has teamed up with an international nonprofit health organization so as to highlight the challenges in Uganda’s health sector and advocate for transformative innovation to save lives.
The gospel musician is now a goodwill ambassadors of ‘Program for Appropriate Technology in Health’ (PATH) and will through music address specific health issues such as HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, Nutrition, Malaria, family planning, maternal and child health among others.
In his childhood testimony, Pr Bugembe says he lost both his parents and four brothers to HIV but miraculously, he and his another brother, did not contract the virus.
Other signed artistes are Joanita Kawalya, Hillary Kiyaga commonly known as Dr. Hilderman, Mesach Ssemakula, Rhema Namakula and Richard Kasandwe commonly known as Ziza Bafana.
The group of six uncovered some of their music that calls for heath living on Tuesday at Serena Hotel In Kampala.
The initiative is also supported by US Aid, and an administrator from the organisation, Mr Godfrey Kayemba told a local news daily at the occasion that the drive will happen every year, tackling various health challenges.
PATH helps Ugandan citizens and civil society organizations improve the quality and availability of health and social services by enhancing their capacity to carry out effective advocacy.
This work, the organisation says, has been instrumental in developing policy guidelines for product introduction and disease management.
