Losing hope amid Uganda doctors' strike
Uganda's doctors have gone on strike, fed up with what they say are the lowest wages in Africa and a lack of resources. They are demanding that their salaries, currently starting at just $260 a month for junior doctors, increased 10-fold, as well as benefits like cars and domestic workers.
But as the fight between the Uganda Medical Association and the government rumbles on, what does it mean for those Ugandans in desperate need of medical attention? The BBC's Catherine Byaruhanga meets the families caught in the middle.
The crumbling buildings housing Kamuli General Hospital's wards and clinics are almost entirely deserted.
With most of medical personnel not coming to work, patients who would usually attend this hospital in rural eastern Uganda have taken their cue, and nearly all the beds are empty.
But it doesn't mean people don't need care.
