What We Do: Medical/Health Care

According to the latest World Health Organization Report of 2012, there were an estimated 219 million cases of malaria in 2010 and an estimated 660,000 deaths.  Africa is the most effected continent with about 90% of all malaria deaths.  In the report the WHO ranks Uganda as the fourth highest malaria burdened country in the Africa region. The WHO also reports that the number of LLINs delivered to endemic countries in sub-Saharan Africa dropped from a peak of 145 million in 2010 to an estimated 66 million in 2012

The World Development Indicators Database ranks Uganda as having a 0.08 number of physicians to 1,000 people, compared to the United States ranking of 2.3 per 1,000.  

Drug access, population with access to essential drugs, for the United States is 95% and for Uganda ranking is at the low access of 50% (WHO).  The department assigns the estimates to four groupings: very low access (0-49%), low access (50-79%), medium access (80-94%) and good access (95-100%).

Life expectancy at birth for Uganda is 49 years and for America it is 79 years of age (WDID)

One can not achieve community sustainability and individual self-reliance without giving attention to the quality and availability of medical and healthcare of the region.  Project Restore’s short term goal for its medical programs is to create access to safe, reliable and adequate healthcare for the people of Uganda, Africa.  The long term goal for these projects is to improve individual health and have a reduction in malaria cases which in-turn will save lives, reduce poverty, spur economic growth, self-reliance and prosperous communities.
