Court to rule on case in which gov’t was sued over absence of interpreters in health facilities

The Constitutional Court  has said it will deliver its judgement on notice in a case in which government was sued for failure to provide sign language interpreters in public health facilities.

Two non-governmental organisations,  Initiative for Social and Economic Rights (ISER ) and Uganda National Association of the Deaf (UNAD)  in 2017 dragged government to court for failure to provide interpreters arguing that it is tantamount to discrimination against people with hearing disabilities in Uganda’s healthcare system.

On Wednesday, both parties were informed by the court that the judgement will be delivered on notice after filing of written submissions.

“After listening to the submissions presented to this court, we shall deliver our judgement on notice, “ruled Justice Egonda Ntende the lead judge on the panel of five justices said on Wednesday morning.
