Uganda

Children with a volunteer - Africa

Our links in Uganda are predominantly with the Bwindi Community Hospital. The ever dynamic Junior International Committee have been instrumental in developing 12 month placements for UK GPs and in some instances trainees.

The RCGP is also lead partner in a THET funded family planning project aimed at addressing an unmet need in modern contraception. With local stakeholders we are providing are providing Family Planning and Sexual Health Training and Education through the U-SHAPE initiative.

The project aims to build much needed capacity, provide adolescent friendly health education and integrate family planning into local  health services. Work has begun in Bwindi Community Hospital Kanunugu District, South West Uganda and is planned to expand to other hospitals and districts across the country.
