Hoima struggles with poor maternal healthcare

Due to delays in referrals, most mothers from distant rural areas such as Kyangwali Sub County which is over 80 kilometres away from Hoima regional referral hospital reach the facility in a dire state. Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) such as Think Humanity (TH) have been handy in providing maternal care to mothers in remote areas such as Kyangwali subcounty. TH runs a clinic that offers maternal services to refugees in Kyangwali refugee camps and surrounding communities whose nearest health facilities are over 30 kilometres away. Referral cases are sent to Hoima regional referral hospital that is over 80 kilometres away.
