Heal the world

These pictures come from wendsday’s delivery in few HEalth Centers in Isingiro district. The project I am working in,among many other aspects, is about giving the drugs that the governmet doesn’t supply or supplies in a not sufficient quantity. The health system in Uganda is,basically, a pyramid,at the bottom the HC1,2,3 and 4. HC1 are not even physical structures,while the HCs 2,3 and 4 are clinics that are meant to serve a certain number of patients,according to their level. The governmet supplies a standard kit to the HC 2 and 3, while the HC4 are able to make their own orders of drugs. As the kit have never been updated since its creation in 2010, the amount of drugs is,often, not enough so HCs face the problem of stock outs. Where the governmet doesn’t arrive,my project does so we deliver medcines everytime the HCs are in need. Very often. My biggest dream,by the end of my assignment would be to make an agreement with the governmet and having an update of the kit that better reflects what the clinics need, according to the growth of the population. Will I be able to do that?!? I hope so…I will let you know😉
