POWER Paralegal Training

In recent years, the provision of healthcare services has become a challenge in many parts of Uganda. One of the significant obstacles is the lack of knowledge and understanding of the legal framework surrounding healthcare service delivery. In response, we had a POWER paralegal training in Luwero district, Uganda, for health workers and local leaders to equip them with legal knowledge to help improve healthcare delivery.

The training, which was facilitated by legal experts from FIDA Uganda, aimed to educate participants on their legal rights and obligations in relation to healthcare service delivery. The two-day training covered various topics that will come in handle for the health workers.

The training was attended by health workers and local leaders from different communities in Luwero district. The participants were enthusiastic about the training and actively engaged in the discussions and practical exercises.

One of the main benefits of the POWER paralegal training was that it empowered the participants with legal knowledge and skills to deal with healthcare-related disputes in their communities. The training equipped them with the tools and confidence to identify and report medical malpractice cases and advocate for patient rights. The participants also learned how to use legal procedures to resolve disputes amicably, without resorting to violence or other forms of conflict.

The POWER paralegal training also helped to improve communication and collaboration between healthcare providers and local leaders. Participants learned how to work together to identify and address healthcare challenges in their communities. This collaboration will help to promote a more harmonious and effective healthcare service delivery system in the district.

In conclusion, the POWER paralegal training conducted in Luwero, Uganda, was a valuable initiative that helped to empower health workers and local leaders with legal knowledge and skills to improve healthcare delivery in their communities. The training equipped the participants with the tools and confidence to advocate for patient rights and address healthcare-related disputes in a peaceful and legal manner. We hope that similar initiatives will be replicated in other parts of Uganda to enhance the quality of healthcare service delivery in the country.
