Maternal and Newborn Nealth Care - Uganda (Kyaka II Refugee Settlement)
Opportunity provided by
Seeks to restore health as the first step to restoring hope, working to bring basic but lifesaving medical care to those in need.
Medical Teams has worked in Uganda since 2004, responding to new and long-term crises affecting refugees. We’ve welcomed thousands of courageous people who were forced to leave home for their own safety. We’ve cared alongside them through evolving crises, from Ebola outbreaks to conflict in neighboring countries.
Our programs in Uganda are extensive. We care for families at clinics located where people are — in refugee settlements. Mothers get prenatal care, children receive vaccines, and families know where to turn for fevers or chronic diseases. We stock clinics with everything from gauze to life-saving treatments, for things like malaria or malnutrition. We built the first Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in a refugee settlement in the country, and recently built a second to provide much-needed care for premature newborns.
Our team in Uganda consists of more than 3,000 team members at 7 different sites across the country. Most of our full-time staff are from Uganda, and about 17% of our staff are refugees themselves. About 47% of our team are local volunteers, largely from the communities we serve. We trust and value their unique perspective and insights about what their communities need.
