Deaf want sign language interpreters at health facilities

On 14th September 2022, the Constitutional Court heard Petition 29 of 2017 filed five years ago by the Initiative for Social and Economic Rights (ISER) together with the Uganda National Association of the Deaf (UNAD) and other members of the deaf community. The case challenges the state’s failure or omission to provide sign language interpretation at health care facilities, an omission that affects nearly 1.1 million Ugandans who have hearing loss.
