Acupuncture Gaining Popularity in Ugandan Hospital Through Chinese Collaboration

Main image to the post Acupuncture Gaining Popularity in Ugandan Hospital Through Chinese Collaboration

In the China-Uganda Friendship Hospital in Kampala, 40-year-old Naome Kayongo is among the increasing number of patients turning to acupuncture for treatment. This traditional Chinese therapy is being administered by a senior Chinese acupuncturist, Wei Wei, with the aim of restoring movement to Kayongo's paralyzed hand. This reflects a broader trend in Uganda where acupuncture is gaining traction as an alternative healing method.

Through a collaboration that dates back to 1983, Chinese medical specialists, including acupuncturists, have been sent to Uganda as part of efforts to improve healthcare services in the country. This partnership has also facilitated the training and exchange programs where Ugandan healthcare professionals travel to China to learn traditional Chinese medicine therapies. One such professional, nurse Stella Apio, has been trained in Beijing and is now applying her skills at the China-Uganda Friendship Hospital, providing acupuncture treatments to patients like Kayongo.

The process of acupuncture involves placing needles on the patient's body, symbolizing hope for recovery. Acupuncture is noted for its effectiveness in treating a range of ailments such as stroke and back pain, catering to patients of different ages. Despite the increasing demand for acupuncture services, the clinic at the hospital operates for only two days a week, attending to about 15 patients each day. The availability of acupuncture at the hospital has been well-received by patients like Kayongo, who express gratitude for the positive impact the therapy has had on their health.
