Ugandan and International groups call for urgent action by the World Bank to fight discrimination in Uganda's health sector
Ugandan and International groups today released a letter to World Bank Executive Director Dr. Jim Kim calling for urgent action to address pervasive discrimination in the health sector, especially for LGBTI communities. The World Bank suspended a $90 million loan to Uganda's health sector when the President signed the Anti Homosexuality Act into law. While this anti gay law was recently overturned, discrimination is still alive and well, and is undermining access to lifesaving health services. The organizations are calling for corrective action by the Government of Uganda--before the loan is restarted.
