Uganda ebola training and research unit nears completion

Fort Portal Hospital near Uganda’s border with the Democratic Republic of Congo showed off its new ebola isolation ward to reporters on 17 July.

The ward will allow Ugandans to train in management and care of patients with haemorrhagic fevers like ebola and Marburg. It will also serve as a clinical research site, the Uganda Radio Network reported.

The facility was set up by the Makerere University Walter Reed Project and the Joint Mobile Emerging Disease Intervention Clinical Capability programme, a collaboration between researchers from the United States and Uganda.
