Challenge

The neonatal mortality rate had stagnated for a decade at 27/1,000 live births since 2006. Uganda Demographic and Health Survey 2022 report demonstrated a reduction to 22 per 1,000 live births. Despite this progress, a lot of work still needs to be done to avert the high numbers of preventable newborn deaths that still exist within the country Furthermore, almost 28% of maternal deaths in Uganda occur in young women aged 15-24 years.

Solution

Considering the three leading causes for maternal deaths (hemorrhage, obstructed labor, complications from stillbirth) are preventable, the Rwenzori Center for Research and Advocacy (RCRA) sees the urgent need to address the health situation of mothers and children. In order to achieve this a not-for-profit hospital will offer services to those in need.

Long-Term Impact

In our first year of activity, we anticipate the lives of 116 women and 70 children will be saved. We expect these numbers to nearly double in the second year. The hospital will be self sustaining, and will provide care for many years to come. The platform for quality healthcare the hospital will provide will stimulate economic growth and associated development in our region.
