The Ministry of Health has carried out a study on how to improve performance and raise the standards of PNFPS (Private Not For Profit health facilities) in Uganda. AFRICA WITH LOVE HEALTH CENTER has been selected in Masaka. A team of officials visited and briefed the staff.
350 patients registered on the special AIDS TESTING DAY which we had to have over 2 days, again this year there were only 15 patients who tested positive. A Doctor from the UK had joined the team in February and he worked with the Ugandan Doctors, he had brought much needed medical equipment for the Health Center. He spoke to all the patients about AIDS before the testing commenced.
