About the clinic:  Fort Portal is one of Uganda’s nicer towns, north of Queen Elizabeth Park and near the DR Congo border a 7 hr bus ride from Kampala or a 1 hr plane ride from Entebbe.  Dr. Oscar is well-organized and a pleasant host.  The hospital has a public and a private wing.  Until Jan 2014, only extractions and glass ionomer temporary fillings are provided at the hospital.  Like most RRHs they are struggling to determine hoe to have a fee for service vs a fee for materials.  We will solve the problem in Feb 2014 with a universal fee guide for RRHs.  We met with Rotary officials in the evening and had a pleasant discussion of future collaboration between Rotary and Fort Portal Hospital.
