Director - Health Services
In the early stages, AAH grappled with how to help children get an education when so many were sick and underfed. Malaria and other serious but treatable illnesses cause long absences, from which some children never return.
To address this need, AAH built and opened a clinic in 2006. Located at the Arlington Junior School premises in Bumwalukani, Bududa, It was called Beatrice Tierney Health Clinic and was opened to the entire community.
Our second clinic opened in 2008 in an even more remote area in Namisindwa district. Each year, this health center handles more than 30,000 patient visits, over half of whom are children aged five and under.
The clinics provide services in line with the minimum health care package for the ministry of Health in Uganda. These include but not limited to immunization, antenatal care, postnatal care, laboratory services, HIV testing, counselling and treatment. The clinic staff also do community outreach, gender based and offer sexual violance services.
This is made possble with our US friends along with our local implementing partners and the Uganda Government.
