The purpose of this project is to establish community health centres, to build medical and administrative capacity, and provide access to affordable pharmaceuticals and equipment. The health centres' staff are stakeholders.
By strengthening local capacity, primary care for Africa's poor will be transformed.
Working with faith-based, private not-for-profit health centres will provide patients with higher quality care at lower cost than their secular counterparts.
Through the employment of a Country Director and local staff, LifeNet
will establish over the next 3-5 years:
- A network of up to 80 partner health centres
- Regular medical and management training to relevant health centre staff
- Regular quality evaluations and assessments
- A finance strategy for partner centres to increase pharmaceutical supply and equipment
with the following outcomes
- working with major churches and church coordinating health bodies such as the Uganda Protestant Medical Bureau and Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau
- impacting up to 1 million people or more (patients) as the network grows
