In Uganda, there is just one doctor for every 24,000 citizens. The severe lack of adequately trained emergency care staff is causing devastation across the country. With an impending third wave of COVID-19, and with just 3.2% of the country vaccinated, support is urgently needed now. Your donation is supporting a crucial emergency care virtual training programme for health workers in Uganda to be better equipped for emergency response work. The training will build the capacity of health workers to manage COVID-19 cases as well as other emergency conditions which will help save countless lives. Thank you.
