Investigations underway into missing HIV test kits in Uganda

Officials in Uganda’s National Medical Stores (NMS) are in a panic after security organizations started investigating the disappearance of HIV testing kits.
A source who spoke on condition of anonymity said that NMS – which stores and distributes drugs to public health facilities – packed the kits, but the courier delivered empty boxes to the districts.
“The boxes left NMS with the testing kits, but we were shocked when we learnt that the courier only delivered empty boxes for Kasese and Kyenjojo district stores,” he said.
He declined to name the courier organization that delivered the boxes.
