The Ministry of Health has acquired medical equipment to carry out vasectomies across the country. Officials from the Ministry informed parliament that the medical kits were acquired with support from World Bank and will be distributed up to Health Centre 4 level.
The revelation came after lawmakers on the public accounts committee demanded that the Ministry of Health implements vasectomy as one of the family planning methods.
Some of the most common methods Ugandans have been taking advantage of include ;natural method (calendar, rhythm)
barrier methods (condom, spermicide), and hormonal method (pill, injection).
