Who We Are
The Ubuntu Health Initiative (UHI) is a Community-Based Organization committed to transforming communities, households, and individuals through the implementation of sustainable and responsive community development interventions. Founded in 2020, UHI originated as the community outreach arm of the Lyantonde School of Nursing and Midwifery. With a strong mission to make a positive impact, UHI strives to improve the well-being of people by addressing their health and social needs.
By utilizing a community-based approach, UHI aims to empower individuals and communities to take charge of their own development. Through various programs and initiatives, UHI works towards creating sustainable solutions that address the unique challenges faced by communities. These interventions are designed to promote long-term development, focusing not only on immediate health concerns but also on fostering self-reliance and resilience.
As a result, UHI plays a vital role in bridging the gap between healthcare services and the community, ensuring that individuals have access to quality care and support. By fostering collaboration and inclusivity, UHI strives to create lasting positive change in the lives of the people it serves, ultimately contributing to the overall development and well-being of the communities it works with.
