Leading Causes of Morbidity and Mortality: Kampala, Uganda
HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria are the most significant causes of morbidity and mortality in Uganda.
Nationally, malaria is the leading cause of death, killing 400 Ugandans daily, mostly pregnant women and children under five.
The 1995 Burden of Disease study attributes over 60 percent of life years lost from premature death to five groups of preventable conditions, including malaria (15.4 percent), acute lower respiratory tract infections (10.5 percent) and AIDS (9.1 percent).
