GlobeMed at UMKC partners with Kyetume Community Based Health Care Program to advance the completion of the health care center in Kibaale.

Who We Are // GlobeMed at UMKC

GlobeMed at UMKC is a student led organization that partners with Kyetume Community Based Health Care Program to advance the completion of the health care center in Kibaale. Since 2013, GlobeMed at UMKC has raised over $8,000 on collaborative projects with KCBHCP.

The powerful aspect of this partnership is that we are advancing health equity by partnering with our friends in Uganda, and working with them to find solutions to our problems. This furthers our solidarity, and builds a better partnership as we move forward into a better future.


Our Partner // Kyetume Community Based Health Care Program in Mukono, Uganda

Globemed at UMKC is partnered with Kyetume Community Based Health Care Program. KCBHCP is involved in several different programs in the Mukono District including education, water and sanitation, and programs in empowerment, microfinance and psycho-social support, health outreaches and violence prevention. They have two health centers: one in Kyetume and the other in Katoosi. The third health center is in progress and it is located in Kibaale.

KCBHCP uses an integrated community-based health care approach to help solve the health, education and economic problems facing the people of Mukono. To work with KCBHCP, Globemed at UMKC is helping to fund the healthcare center being built in Kibaale. With Kibaale being the most rural community in Uganda, the people there have little access to medical resources and clean water. Once the health center is built, the people of Kibaale will have the necessary medical professionals along with supplies that will decrease the mortality rate in that community.

Our Project // $6,000 for Health Care Center

With the assistance of GlobeMed and other partners, Kyetume Community Based Health Care Program will be a building a Level II Health Center in Kyakuterekera village in Kibaale District, Uganda. Kibaale is the least urbanized district in all of Uganda and it is very difficult for remote, rural villagers in Kyakutereka to reach the nearest government health facility. The partnership believes the focus must be on bringing services to the people rather than people to the services in order to curb preventable death and disability. It is their belief that by providing quality, affordable health care, the people of Kyakutereka will live longer, healthier, more productive lives. GlobeMed at UMKC will be involved in assisting in the pre‑construction phase of this project. Grassroots Onsite Work (GROW) interns will assist in documenting the construction, taking needs assessments of the community, developing monitoring and evaluation tools to assess the impact of the health center.
