Summary

1 in 44 mothers die in childbirth in Uganda every day, but most deaths go unreported according to the Ugandan Ministry of Health. For each maternal death, 20 women suffer sever complications. Our women's hospital in Iganga, Uganda will serve a population of 750,000 people who have little or no access to care during pregnancy or delivery by providing a clean, safe, fully equipped facility where women will be treated with dignity and respect.

Challenge

With a population of 750 thousand people Iganga is one of the poorest districts in Uganda, the ability for women to access medical care both during pregnancy and delivery is almost impossible. Lack of transportation to a government facility is often limited and women often walk many miles just to reach there. If they do make it the government hospitals, they are run down, dirty, ill equipped in both supplies and well trained medical help.

Solution

our Birth Center will provide care to many mothers who have no access to help. We have a birth center for normal delivery, an operating theater for emergency surgery, ultrasound, laboratory and pharmacy. We will provide education, natural family planning, nutrition, sanitation, access to clean water, HIV/ Aids testing and retroviral medication.

Long-Term Impact

By providing access to good maternal care we will have an impact on reducing mother/newborn mortality and morbidity rates in our area of Uganda. We will provide many jobs for the unemployed in our area, raising many out of dire poverty.
