UHCA is also a Tobacco Control Advocate organisation that uses its influence with the media to promote, inform and guide journalists on how to broadcast and report about the Tobacco Control activities in Uganda.
This week, UHCA is travelling the country talking to media practitioners about the need to report about the implement the Tobacco Control Law.  Below in images are the session;

The above images are during the media training in Western Uganda on the Tobacco Control Act, dangers of tobacco use, Tobacco Industry tactics and emphasizing compliance.  In this region UHCA covered districts of Fortportal, Kibito, Kyenjojo, Kyegegwa and Kasese.
