Towards more inclusive urban health systems for refugee wellbeing: Lessons from Kampala, Uganda
Uganda has a progressive national refugee policy that provides freedom of movement and the right to work, own land and access basic services in urban centres. However, refugees experience a number of barriers to realising these rights in practice, including hidden costs, language gaps, discrimination and institutional incapacity.
This working paper examines how refugees access healthcare services in Kampala, the barriers to access, and the impact of these barriers on refugee wellbeing.
