Uganda

Hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled to northern Uganda following violence in South Sudan. Uganda is currently the largest refugee hosting country in Africa.

We are working to provide medical care, mother and child health services, and water and sanitation activities for South Sudanese refugees who have fled to Uganda.

Although the number of new cases per year has been declining, seven per cent of the population (about 1.5 million people) is HIV positive.

We offer point-of-care viral load testing in Arua regional hospital, which facilitates rapid detection and early treatment, leading to an improved outcomes for patients.

In Kasese, we run a clinic providing basic and comprehensive healthcare to adolescents, including sexual and reproductive health services, and HIV and tuberculosis (TB) prevention, screening and treatment.
