We subscribe to the worldwide belief that health is wealth and that a healthy woman is a health community. Good health provides the foundation for community and economic development. Ensuring that women, adolescents and children are healthy is essential to sustainable development. Through joint efforts and support from our partners and funders, we support communities to prevent a wide range of diseases and address different persistent and emerging health issues.

Although 17,000 fewer children die each day than in 1990, more than five million children still die before their fifth birthday each year. Uganda registers 54.5 deaths/1000 live deaths (2018) while in one woman in every 49 dies due to complications related to pregnancy or child delivery.
community health programs

Poor access to healthcare and low standards of health are dangerous issues facing women and children in Uganda. Investing in healthcare to prevent diseases and address women and children’s needs from infancy to young adulthood through capacity building and making healthcare accessible is very timely. Our health interventions include health promotion and education in primary and secondary schools, community health sensitization, distribution of mosquito nets, family planning education and condom distribution. Through working with the district health systems and partners, we contribute to systems strengthening through provision of health equipments and capacity building of health workers.
