During the meeting that took place today at State House, Entebbe President Museveni discussed with Mr. Jay Ireland, President and CEO General Electric Africa, how General Electric could provide and manage medical diagnosis equipment to hospitals in Uganda and also provide sub stations at industrial parks.

Mr. Museveni welcomed the idea by General Electric to provide hospital equipment saying this would reduce the amount of money Ugandans spend in other countries where they travel for specialized treatment.

“This will eliminate medical tourism of Ugandans to other countries and also reduce the number of patients who come to Kampala for treatment,” he said.

The company also expressed interest in providing sub-stations at industrial parks.
