St Francis Hospital Buluba is a 120 bed hospital on the shores of Lake Victoria, 120 Km from Kampala in eastern Uganda. It was established in 1934 by the Franciscan Missionary Sisters as an isolation centre for leprosy sufferers but became operational as a general hospital by 2003. It still cares for leprosy patients but fortunately the problem is now less common. It serves a large rural area and delivers 1000 babies each year.
It also has a farm.
