Challenge

The approximately 122,000 residents of live 18 to 80 km from the nearest hospital, Kamuli Hospital. This facility is government-run, and as such, provides basic medical treatment. However, because it is the primary medical facility for several districts (and the only one consistently staffed by doctors), it is chronically over-crowded, under-staffed and lacking in sufficient inventories of medication. Its aging buildings and equipment are inadequate to meet the needs of the patients filling..

Solution

The Hospital will be a fully-functional Uganda Healthcare Level 4 facility providing basic triage, diagnostic and treatment services for the most common health issues facing rural Ugandans. Data from Engeye Hospital which treats a similar demographic indicate that the following diagnoses are the most common: Malaria, Respiratory Tract Infection, GERD / Dyspepsia / Peptic Ulcer Disease, Hypertension, Gastroenteritis / Diarrhea, Urinary Tract Infection, Sexually Transmitted Infections / Pelvic..

Long-Term Impact

Each patient will be charged a nominal charge per visit consistent with the charges established at Engeye Hospital. This nominal fee will be requested primarily to ensure that the patient values the service being provided, and increases the likelihood of the patient following the recommended treatment course. However, these fees will also be useful in defraying a portion of the Hospital's operating expenses.
