Kagote Canopy was sponsored by the Ethical Elective Placement Scheme which invests in those facilities hosting Salford University students. It is very rare in Uganda to have patients triaged effectively (sorted on the basis of their needs) with few facilities undertaking basic observation to assess patient well-being. This shelter will be used not only for waiting but also for triaging patients – basic observations will be taken in the shelter before patients are called for treatment in the new out patients department. Around 30 patients are seen every day in out patients.
