MTambula uses mobile to ease healthcare access in Uganda

Uganda faces a number of challenges and one of them is the difficulty in access to public services especially health care facilities. This is due to a number of factors, one of them being a lack of convenient access to vital information about the location of these facilities and contact details of personnel at these facilities.
