Makonge Community Health Centre

Makonge Community Health Centre

The Makonge Community Health Centre is situated in Kiyindi in the Buikwe District. The centre runs a general clinic, an antenatal clinic, deliveries, family planning, HIV testing and treatment and child immunisation. Thanks to donors, we have been able to equip the medical centre with motorcycle and bicycle ambulances, maternity equipment, and emergency drugs for the maternity department. The facility is currently operated by 15 staff, 11 of whom are healthcare professionals and 4 of whom are support staff. One member of staff attended a UHMG (Uganda Health Marketing Group) conference in Mbale in August 2010, which was intended to encourage health units to consider ways of growth, especially by considering the area of customer care. All staff receive training on Malaria Management.
