President yoweri Museveni has said there is need for Ugandans to be more health conscious in order to curb on the rising lifestyle diseases.
Museveni made the remarks last week while launching 12 marine ambulances at the Marine Battalion headquarters in Entebbe. The ambulances will ease access to adequate health services in island areas.
In his remarks, Museveni noted that there’s need for the Ministry of Health to educate all Ugandans about diet and lifestyle.
Speaking from his personal experience, Museveni revealed that in the last 60 years, he has rarely fallen sick because he pays enough attention to his lifestyle.
I have been active for the last 60 years, almost continuously. I think I have only been down with some malaria only two times in these 60 years. Because I have got work to do and I cannot do it when I’m sick. I have got a mission to do.” Museveni said.
