Josh and Nadine reside in Kampala, Uganda, where Josh is the LifeNet Country Director, and Nadine is serving as LifeNet’s Medical Training Consultant. We are originally from Canada, where we both worked as Registered Nurses in Edmonton’s inner city. Josh worked in ER, and Nadine ran a nursing station in a men’s homeless shelter. In 2013, we packed up our lives and moved to Burundi, a small country in Central East Africa, to establish and run a rural health center. Two years later, we joined LifeNet International and moved to Uganda to start their country office here. We are still residing in Kampala, Uganda, where Josh is the LifeNet Country Director, and Nadine is serving as LifeNet’s Medical Training Consultant.

Through our work with LifeNet, we provide essential training services to dozens of faith-based health centers here in Uganda. We feel blessed to share God’s unfailing love with the people we work with, to empower the church in Uganda, and to improve the quality of health systems in sub-Saharan Africa. Thank you for all of your prayers, love, and support! 

A little more about the project

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 and provide
  • 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
