Refugee Solidarity summit in Kampala brought in pledges of $358.6m (Ushs1.25 trillion), which although was praised by President Museveni and the UN Secretary General António Guterres as a good starting point, is still far less of the earlier intended goal by $1.6b (Ushs5 trillion).
The lukewarm response to Uganda’s solidarity with a refugee population of close to 1.3 million refugees out of which 950,000 are from South Sudan, is a reflection of the growing void in humanitarian aid funding for the South Sudan crisis.

Uganda's national Tuberculosis Reference Laboratory will soon become a reference laboratory for the entire East African region.
The facility will in 2012 become the second TB supranational laboratory in sub-Saharan Africa after a similar laboratory in South Africa.
The World Health Organisation granted Uganda candidate status to join the TB Supranational Reference Laboratory Network, which will make testing of drug resistant TB easier and bring the service closer.
