Challenge

Villagers do not have access to medical care. Facilities in rural Uganda are few in number and lack medicine and staff. The Mobile Health Clinic provides free medical care for those who can't afford treatment. It also provides healthcare, sanitation and hygiene training to give communities the knowledge to identify and treat preventable diseases. The staff examines each villager and gives each patient needed medications. Each clinic usually runs out of medicine due to the overwhelming demand.

Solution

This project will bring health care to the individual villages. It will provide additional drugs to treat simple needs such as pain and cough elixirs and prescription medications that battle more complicated conditions. The Mobile Health Clinic will be able to treat communicable childhood diseases as well as infections, malaria, and other tropical maladies. It will also allow Bambi Uganda Orphans to expand its sanitation and hygiene wellness programs.

Long-Term Impact

Since 2003 Bambi's Mobile Health Clinic has treated 70,000+ people. During July - September 2015 a total of 1446 patients were treated, of these 299 were between the ages of 0 - 6 years, 415 were between the ages of 6 - 17 years. By directly visiting various villages and providing free medical care, basic treatment and medicines, the clinic will improve the long term health and welfare of the most vulnerable communities in Uganda resulting in healthier children and and families.
