 NMS would love to respond to the false news which has been making rounds on social media about the shortage of ARVs, and in particular, that PEPFAR gave money to NMS to procure ARVs.  We appeal to the public to treat the rumor with the contempt it deserves.

 We clarify that NMS has not received any money from PEPFAR for procurement of ARVs.

 We remain steadfast in ensuring that Ugandans get quality essential medicine and medical supplies to the extent of the budget made available to it

 NMS: Passionate about your life.

Due to the large numbers that turned up for the first 3 days of the Free Yellow Fever Vaccination, NMS in partnership with Mulago National Referral Hospital and Ministry of Health have extended the vaccination exercise for another 4 days starting from  Tuesday 03rd - Thursday 06th Oct 2017 at Kololo Independence Grounds from 8:00AM till 4:00PM.

Our attention has been drawn to a Press Release by Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development which appeared in the New Vision, Daily Monitor and The Red Pepper of Thursday, 15th June 2017, and the Statements of the Hon. Minister of Finance, Planning and Economic Development while being hosted on CBS 89.3 FM Radio Program of Wednesday, 15th June 2017.

The Release misleads the General Public into believing that NMS got, and was meant to get, the sh.68billion from Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development from the PTA Bank as part of the general funding from the Consolidated Fund.

Since the Author of this Press Release is an Economist, we can only say that, at the very best, he was “economical with the truth”. On the part of NMS, we deal in medicines and we shall therefore “dispense the truth” as here under, as we believe that it is only the truth that will set us free:-

1. In the Financial Year 2010/11, FY 2011/12 and FY 2014/15, NMS suffered budget cuts totalling to sh.36,447,251,373/=. The non-release, in all the above cases, was in Quarter 4 when NMS would have already procured the Essential Medicines and Health Supplies (EMHS) for delivery to the
Health Facilities.
