KHIS ExecutiveThe Executive Committee of the Kisiizi Hospital Community Health Insurance Scheme met today with some members of our hospital management committee.  The scheme has thankfully broken even for the financial year 2012 – 2013.  The membership is around 34,000 people and must be one of the cheapest schemes in the world.

The timber is then moved on our old lorry to our carpentry workshop for storage.


Mat theatre

The light in our Maternity theatre, used for Caesarian sections, has been a persistent problems so recently we have strengthened the roof to support a new theatre light set up which hopefully will give our surgeons excellent visibility in future.

The treatment room built on the rear of the surgical ward area we are refurbishing has been roofed and plastered and the terrazo tile floor is to be installed soon so hopefully we will be able to start properly utilising the ward area.

We hope to be able to continue the refurbishment process in the other end of the surgical ward if we can find further support from friends.

The tv screen in our Out-Patient queue area is now regularly used for a mix of Health Promotion video made in Kisiizi and some Christian music videos.  We hope to make more Rukiga videos and use them for health promotion here and in the community.
