Welcome to Uganda Medical Association website. We are a national health professional organization formed in 1964 to provide a forum where doctors can deliberate on issues that concern their welfare and their professional interests. We also act as an umbrella to bring together all doctors of Ugandan Origin both at home and abroad.
The Association promotes the highest possible standards of medical ethics and provides ethical guidance to doctors. We also promote and defend the basic rights of doctors, helping doctors to continuously improve their knowledge and skills as well as providing guidance on patient safety. Other areas include public health policy development and advocacy for doctors and patients’ rights.
Let me begin by acknowledging the contributions of each and every one of you towards ensuring that the communities you serve have access to health and health care. We particularly acknowledge all our partners who have stood by UMA
