Annual Report 2022

We are very pleased to share with you the progress we have made. Thanks to the support of the Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung, the only NCD services in the Nakaseke district have been secured so far.

Being healthy is exactly what we aim to achieve through our project activities: reducing morbidity and mortality due to the increasing global NCD burden whilst improving quality of life by generating evidence.

Extremely grateful for the support of the Else Kröner-Fresenius-Stiftung, we complete another successful project year in which we were able to pursue our vision. We continue to focus on NCD research, education, and care with the goal of achieving effective management and control of non-communicable diseases.

Key accomplishments:

  • Since the beginning of the project we registered a NCD clinic attendance of over 9,300 visits by over 2,200 patients.
  • We implemented 3 studies investigating community health worker (CHW) interventions.
  • We employed a tool to assess the knowledge, attitude and practices of nursing tutors towards NCD management.
  • Implemented an electronic medical records system that the clinic team uses capture clinical data and patient outcomes.
  • Various stakeholder meetings with the Ministry of Health, local government and the district health office.
  • We continue to engage the community advisory board (CAB) as our NCD taskforce.
