Project General Description

The Improvement of Health Services Delivery at Mulago Hospital and in the City of Kampala Project is designed to redirect the high demand for basic health care that currently congests services delivery at Mulago Hospital – the national tertiary care facility for medical services by supporting the establishment of two new secondary health care facilities and a referral system. It aims to increase access to quality and affordable health care services for the population of the Kampala metropolitan area. The Project is centered on three broad strategic outcomes namely: Capacity Development and System Strengthening; Revitalized Referral and Counter-referral System; and Expanded & Improved Health Services in Kampala City. It will be implemented over a four-year period starting January 2012; at a cost of UA 56 million (approximately US$ 88 million).

Project Objectives

The Principal Objective of this project is to improve access to quality and affordable Health care services for the population of the Kampala Metropolitan Area. The project will contribute to supporting the Health Sector Strategic and Investment Plan (HSSIP) thus contributing to reduction of morbidity and mortality from the major causes of the disease burden in the country.


The project is expected to benefit the entire national population estimated at 31.8 million since Mulago Hospital is the main National Referral and Teaching Hospital. Immediate project beneficiaries are estimated at 3 million people (9.4% of the national population), the majority being women and children under 15 years.
