The Nurture Africa Health Centre opened its doors on August 2011. It was officially opened by the Commissioner for Child Health, Dr. Jessica Nsuigura, alongside Irish Ambassador Anne Webster on October 21st. This health centre provides ‘best practice’ specialist paediatric HIV and primary health treatment to the most vulnerable children in Wakiso District, Uganda.
The Nurture Africa Health Centre will provide free primary health care treatment to 15,000 orphans and vulnerable children annually. This treatment will mainly be for the biggest killers to under- 5 year olds in Africa, including malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea and measles.
500 HIV+ children and their HIV infected guardians will also access care, treatment and counselling support in the health centre. This is thanks to partners such as Irish Aid, The VHI and Impact Trade Union.
