UNHCO pays tribute to its founder member and patron Dr. Samuel Lwanga who passed-on on 28th December 2012. Dr. Lwanga will always be remembered for his struggle to uphold the right to health in Uganda.
In 1999 Dr. Samuel Lwanga led colleagues and advocates to create an institutional voice for patients. This gave birth to the Uganda National Health Users’/Consumers’ Organisation (UNHCO).
Fourteen (14) years on, UNHCO, popularly known as the “consumers’ representative” in the health sector is a formidable Non Government Organisation empowering communities to stand-up for their right to quality health services and contributing to policy processes at national level.
Dr. Lwanga will be dearly missed by UNHCO community, Staff and Board of Directors. May God rest his soul in eternal peace.
