|Safe Blood in Developing Countries - The Lessons from Uganda (EC, 1995, 151 p.)|
|Section Five - Key issues in blood transfusion: The Uganda experience|
|Chapter Thirteen - Other issues, and their solutions|
Communications with hospitals and between regional blood banks have been a major and, as yet, unsolved problem. Until 1992 the NBB rarely had a telephone service. The MoH radio link could sometimes be used for brief messages and occasionally the Uganda Broadcasting Service would deliver messages. But the only real solution will be the expected improvement in the national telephone system, to a level that will allow computer communication via modem.
