Nurses take care of newly born babies at Kisenyi health centre in Uganda's capital Kampala April 10, 2015. Kisenyi health center in Kampala, which delivers 600 babies a month, symbolizes the shift in Uganda which has seen the country invest more money in the healthcare system to make it accessible for the poorest, Save the Children said. Child deaths in Kampala fell faster than in any other African city between 2006 and 2011 - despite a large influx of refugees from war-torn neighboring states, the charity said in a report.
