Challenge

There is a severe lack of affordable health care in Uganda, especially to poor communities. This has given malaria chance to claim many lives of children particularly orphans and vulnerable children. According to a recent report from the World Health Organization, Uganda has the world's highest malaria incidence, with a rate of 478 cases per 1000 population per year . Malaria is responsible for up to 40% of all outpatient visits, 25% of all hospital admissions and 14% of all hospital deaths.

Solution

Kalambi community outreach project working with hand in hand with St. Francis community health center will provide round-the-clock, comprehensive medical and basic health services, primarily to children in Village of Wakiso district in central Uganda. Much emphasis like malaria prevention, care and health advice will be offered to families taking care of these children.

Long-Term Impact

With improved diagnostics, and medications available, Over 200 orphans and vulnerable children in the four villages of Wakiso district in central Uganda will live healthier and longer lives. Medical care and health sensitization workshops will enable adults to better care for their children. And similar massages of malaria prevention and care will be disseminated to nearby villages hence leaving no room for the spread of malaria in the next 10 years.
