Lastest news of the project in Uganda
News of the project.…
The access to the medical equipment such as the machine for blood testing and dental instruments, allows the doctors in Uganda to better diagnose and treat their patients.
A few examples will serve to illustrate the impact of the utilization of those (limited) resources:
- Ultrasound scanning is now available: to date, 1600 patients, including a large number of pregnant women, have been given ultrasound tests;
- Hematology laboratory equipment has made it possible to do routine blood tests on a large number of people;
- Dental equipment has made it possible to provide much needed treatment and relief to people suffering dental pain.
- Outreach services, have been extended, including maternal and child health care, basic health education, HIV testing and visits to shut-ins.
- The purchase and installation of solar panels provides a constant power supply, something we take for granted but something that is rare in rural Uganda. Now medical staff can work at night and keep medications safely refrigerated
