Think Humanity Health Days

Think Humanity is dedicated to provide healthcare services to refugees and underdeveloped villages in Uganda. Our services include education and provisions for healthcare.

Uganda’s health care performance is ranked as one of the worst in the world by the World Health Organization (WHO). Uganda is ranked 186th out of 191 nations.

Nowhere are health care shortages more evident than in Africa. According to the WHO report, sub-Saharan has 24 percent of the global disease burden but only three percent of the health care workforce worldwide and one percent of the global health expenditure. Doctors and nurses generally stay in urban areas where pay and living conditions are better.

One solution to this health care crisis is to provide health care to poor rural communities and to refugees living in the Kyangwali Refugee Settlement Camp.

The Think Humanity Health Centre Kyangwali opened in May 2012. The Health Centre is located 7 km outside of Kyangwali Refugee Settlement Camp.

The majority of the patients at our health days are women and are treated for malaria, typhoid, brucellosis, urinary tract infections (UTIs), respiratory infections, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) pregnancy, and diarrheal diseases.

Mosquito nets and birthing kits are a couple of the free items given during health day programs.

Thank you to our donors:
