HIV AIDs centre of excellence

Subsaharan Africa has the highest incidence of HIV. AIDs and associated diseases like Tuberculosis in the world.
The Yotkom sponsored medical centre in Kitgum has been awarded Ugandan Government approval to provide free HIV medications to adults and children affected by this disease. The clinic will also be providing pregnancy care to mothers and seeking to identify those carrying the virus so that transmission from mother to child of HIV AIDs can be prevented,
It is unusual for private medical facilities to be given these responsibilities so this is a very positive reflection on the quality of our medical team and the services they provide here
Today the focal team met for some in service training given by a Ugandan  doctor who works in this AIDs  specialty area.
Those present included two clinical officers, a doctor, two comprehensive nurses, a midwife, a laboratory technician and a counsellor. It was a very worthwhile time. Our health team are keen learners!
