What we need help with

Uganda Relief Fund for COVID-19 Project IDMC is working on the frontlines to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the communities we serve in Uganda. In partnership with the Ministry of Health, IDMC partners with 8 clinics and will play a critical role in educational outreach and prevention activities as well as improving our clinical capacity and treating mild to moderate cases. We are proposing urgently sourcing necessary supplies for the coming months to contain and control the spread of the virus and to provide relief and support to those most vulnerable. As the poorest country in East Africa, Uganda faces enormous health challenges on any "normal" day. Its national public health system is profoundly under-resourced, ranking 111 on the Global Health Security (GHS) Index. With the arrival of COVID-19 in Uganda, the issues we are witnessing in developed countries (inadequate healthcare capacity to treat severe respiratory complications, lack of testing kits and limited supplies--masks, sanitizers, etc.) will be many times worse. IDMC is urgently preparing its clinics and working with the Ministry of Health as it finalizes operational plans. We have set critical goals, objectives, and activities for our network and will continue to adjust our plans/priorities as this dynamic situation evolves. Our goals are: 1.) Prevent the spread of coronavirus infection in the communities we serve in Uganda 2.) Treat any patient suspected of having coronavirus 3.) Educate the communities we serve in virus mitigation best practices. Long-Term Impact
