Kiara Rai*

By early November 2022, the Ebola virus disease (EVD), which was first reported in Uganda on September 22, 2022, had spread to seven districts, with a total of 131 confirmed cases and 48 fatalities. Due to Uganda's present demographic makeup, which includes about 1.4 million refugees and asylum seekers, public health emergency response calls for a particular and tailored strategy. In fact, Uganda may serve as an illustration of the significant negative effects on global health caused by forced migration as a result of improved global connectedness. Inclusive policies are even more crucial during public health emergencies given the susceptibility of refugees and migrants due to poor living, housing, and working situations.
