The remarks were sounded on Wednesday by the Assistant District Health Officer in-charge of Environmental Health, Mr. Stephen Bagonza while addressing a delegation from the Infectious Disease Institute College of Health Sciences, Makerere University who had visited the district to monitor their funded services in the district.

Mr. Bagonza told the visiting team at his office that through its innovations, the district with support from Infectious Disease Institute College of Health Sciences, Makerere University, is currently manufacturing hand based sanitizers that are being distributed to all entry points at the DR Congo boarder as well as other neighbouring districts.

 Maureen Kesande, Coordinator at the Infectious Disease Institute College of Health Sciences, Makerere University, revealed during the meeting that Kasese district health department had registered a great improvement and hailed the District Health Team for the great work done. 

David Berendes (PhD) from the Centre for Disease Control said he was happy that the District Health Officials were among the best performers under the hand washing programme.

According to him, the program is intended to address the challenge of infectious diseases among the communities in some selected districts.
