Greetings to everyone from Uganda, where Progressive Health Partnership is continuing to make strides in its Omukazi Namagara Program!  PHP was excited to welcome a new member of its team to Uganda just a couple weeks ago.  Claire Prieto, who will serve as a Project Associate for the next year, represents a great addition to the Omukazi Namagara Program.  Claire brings to PHP previous experience working in Uganda, as well as expertise in community development and maternal health.  Her experience working on malnutrition programs will be a great asset to PHP as the organization aims to strengthen the nutrition-focused components of the Omukazi Namagara Program.

The addition of Claire to PHP's staff represents the organization's continued growth and the success of the ONP.  In her role, Claire will also work on preparing for the expansion of the ONP.  PHP has large ambitions for the program.  The top priority we hope to address is saving the lives of women and children at birth.  In particular, we hope to establish ambulance services for women during labor.  Further down the road, we are considering the feasibility of constructing an operating room within Kashongi and Kitura, so the communities can handle complicated cases themselves, and women are not forced to travel long distances to receive decent healthcare services.

Implementing any of these ideas requires significant resources.  But we know we'll get there, and it's thanks to you that we are able to do the work that we do.
