Residents of Lyantonde, in Masaka district have complained that most health facilities open at 10:00am and close at 2:00pm.
In addition, patients have to wait for over four hours to be attended to by the health workers, a study by Action Group for Health Human Rights and HIV/AIDS (AGHA), reveals.
The study (between January, 2011 and October,2012 ) was carried out in Kinuuka, Kasagama, Mpuumude and Katatema health centre IIIs, with the aim to monitor service provision and gauge the standard of the health facilities.
A similar survey was carried out in Pallisa, Oyam and Masaka districts and it was discovered that the centres had human resource constraints and inadequate health facilities.
Dennis Odwe, the executive director of AGHA, said the 98% of the health facilities visited did not have means of transport such as bicycles and motorcycles and some villages such as Kamuge and Kasagama in Lyantonde had old motorcycles that were in bad mechanical condition.
