Jacob is the interim chief pharmacist at Lacor Hospital and the proud father of a 4-year-old girl. He fell in love with the profession after being inspired by a pharmacist serving in the community.
At Lacor, pharmacists take care of medicines and medical supplies. The medicines are mainly supplied through distributors within Uganda, donations from Canada, and the Ugandan government.
Non-communicable diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer are becoming more and more prevalent in Uganda, and the medicines to treat these diseases can be very costly. By and large, the most expensive medicines are those that treat cancer.
