President Museveni on Tuesday asked top US government officials to partner with Uganda and other African states to fund and grow commitment towards vaccine production in the bloc.

As the first speaker from Africa in the Partnering for Sustainable Health Cooperation and Health Security Forum at the ongoing US Africa Leaders Summit in Washington DC, Mr Museveni opted that the U.S channels funds into Africa because it would yield cheaper medicines.

Museveni who was accompanied by Uganda’s health minister Dr Jane Ruth Aceng also reasoned that this would also strengthen Africa’s footing on the health front.
