Village Health Teams (VHTs) in the Lamogi sub-county have presented their petition to the Resident District Commission over the inconsistent payment of the currently running Covid-19 home-oriented care training.
Twenty-nine VHTs had been designated by the health department of district head quarter to partake in the home-based care to be accorded to people affected by the deadly covid-19 last Thursday.
The above decision was passed due to the increment in the number of people suffering from Covid-19 in neighboring Sudan which is only a stone’s throw away from the Northern border town.
However, the point of dispute arises from the fact that instead of the UGX 100,000 that the team signed for, they were only given half the amount as each of them received only UGX 50,000.
Once the team consulted their trainer for an explanation, they only received a lacking explanation which prompted them to seek a second opinion from a person in high placing hence paying the RDC a visit.

This is not the first time health related workers are explaining over a delayed payment as recently, nurses and midwives had resorted to demonstrating over poor pay and lunch allowance that has accumulated to billions of shillings.
Hopefully, the VHTs’ pleas and concerns shall be addressed since they can be considered as the frontline fighters against Covid-19 in the context of them taking care of the ailing patients from home.
