Nkozi

Nkozi signNkozi Hospital is 83 km west of Kampala and serves an estimated population of 110 000 people. The hospital provides health services to clients outside the catchment area as well, about 40 000 people from the surrounding community. An average of 35,000 people are seen annually as outpatients and about 3,000 require admission, not including maternity patients. Most of the community we serve are poor subsistence farmers whose main source of income is selling their surplus produce. Some members of the community are not able to meet the cost of care and thus in order to reach out to every person in need of health care, cost sharing was adopted by the hospital. Some patients who have no one to attend to them, have their essential needs met by the team. See their website by clicking here.
