ABOUT US

The African Healthcare Initiative  is a young, vibrant and transformational Non-government Organisation whose main objective and commitment is to strengthen healthcare systems in Uganda and beyond by promoting healthy lives and wellbeing for all through innovation, research, advocacy, and outreach with the ultimate aim of achieving universal health coverage by 2030.

The organisation appreciates the fact that Uganda and the rest of Africa faces a broad range of health-related challenges that include few health workers, malaria, lack of access to basic healthcare, malnutrition, HIV and AIDS, High maternal and child mortality rates, high costs of private medical care, and of recent the explosion of non-communicable diseases and that all effective approaches must fundamentally be employed so as to rescue the ailing healthcare system.

We are hence championing a number of sustainable interventions in the healthcare domain, that include the innovative use of ICT4D to increase access to information and other sensitization strategies, promotion of the use of traditional medicine as a source of healthcare, carrying out outreach initiatives so as to extend our warm support to communities in need as well as conducting local based research with intent to nourish healthcare,
