Meet Kenneth and Prisca

Dr Kenneth Kaunda has been our supervising doctor since the medical centre opened in October 2015.
He has been working in the Ugandan Government hospital setting for four years and spending about one week a month on site working with our clinical officers . He has decided to leave the Government setting and will commence working full time on site from 1st March 2017. Its an exciting development for us and also a leap of faith as growing in size and professional standing  means increasing our wages bill considerably!
Kenneth is married to Harriet and they have two children.
He seems to like wearing Australian slouch hats too !
We are hoping that Dr Kenneth will undertake specialty training in Family Medicine in the near future.

Prisca is a well respected local Ugandan Midwife.
We have known her for many years and have assisted her with her training program.
She has agreed to help us start some Maternal and Child Health Services at Yotkom Medical Centre.
Every Friday she will undertake an antenatal clinic , screening young mothers as we play a part in reducing the high rates of maternal and child health mortality in this community.
