Project General Description

The Health Services Improvement Project at the Mulago National Referral Hospital and in Kampala City aims to provide Kampala residents with access to quality health care services. In fact, the existing infrastructure at Bas Mulago Hospital is in a state of disrepair and is insufficient. Category IV (HC IV) health centers in Kampala City are also unable to meet the challenges facing primary health care services. The provisional components of the project are as follows: (i) strengthening of the Health Guidance Services in Kampala; (ii) strengthening maternal and child health services in Kampala; and (iii) support for health sector reforms. This operation will be used to finance the consulting services related to the preparation of the said Project. Preparatory activities to be undertaken require the services of a consulting firm comprising key personnel consisting of the following members: architects, quantity surveyors, maintenance engineers, civil / civil engineering engineers, public health specialists, environmentalist, gender specialist and biomedical engineer, recruited for an estimated period of five (5) ) months.

Project Objectives

The objective of the PPF facility is to conduct a condition assessment (existing conditions survey) of Mulago Hospital and Kampala health centers to determine rehabilitation and extension needs but also to review the organization of the referral system and make appropriate recommendations.


The main beneficiaries of the project are the Ugandan government and the population of the city of Kampala, estimated at nearly three million.
