The Regional Network for Equity in Health in East and Southern Africa (EQUINET) together with the Training and Research Support Centre (TARSC) and the Law of Faculty, Makerere University are carrying out a commissioned review of the Public Health Laws in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania in relation to policy areas relevant to equity in health.

This study will introduce an analytic framework used across the three countries and the major global, international, regional and public health principles being reviewed. It will provide for each country and under each of the headings above, an accessible, easily understood outline of the coverage of and gaps in national law within that area, citing the relevant law or source.

This study will also provide for each country a summary of coverage, inconsistencies, contradictions, redundancies and gaps to be addressed in law and where relevant, in the enforcement mechanisms. It will give an overall summary for the three countries of coverage, inconsistencies, contradictions, redundancies and gaps to be addressed in law and where relevant, in the enforcement mechanisms; and identify areas for follow up stakeholder consultation, listing key stakeholders, for advocacy and for follow up research.

The study will be a detailed review and analysis of the public health laws of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. It will thus involve collating information on Public Health Laws of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania which will be used to prepare the final paper.

The researchers are therefore requesting any organisation or individual with information that will help them in this study to contact Mulumba Moses. The contact email address is [email protected]
