KAMPALA – The Ministry of Health with support from the World Bank Group (WBG) has launched an online system for the renewal of annual practicing licenses for health professionals and health facilities in Uganda.
The new online platform is in line with the move of the Ministry of Health to digitize manual processes in order to increase efficiencies and facilitate the closure of gaps in the manual systems that were vulnerable to fraud.
The new system will allow the online registration and licensing of health professionals, who with the old system had to be physically present in Kampala.
Moving forward, health professionals and facilities will carry out several steps of the process remotely, saving them time and money and allowing them more time to see their clients.
To access the portal users will use web address: www.ehealthlicense.go.ug
For existing/previously registered professionals, login credentials shall be forwarded to them their personal mobile phones. While, new professionals shall create an account and register in the portal to acquire the registration certificate.
