Hope Again Medical Clinic is a project of Bringing Hope to The Family. The medical Clinic is fully registered with the Ministry of Health and works hand in hand with the district health department and Baylor Uganda to offer medical treatment to the local communities and support to the HIV/AIDs positive people especially the orphans and their caretakers. The Clinic offers free treatment to all the HIV/AID positive orphans and free HIV/AIDs testing and counseling to the public. The medical Clinic serves 597 women, 298 men, and 365 children below the age of 17 (most of the children are orphans), for a total of 1,260 HIV/AID positive clients.
Baylor Uganda and the District Health Unit provide the ART treatment while Bringing Hope to the Family offers free HIV/AIDS counseling and testing services, treatment for opportunistic infections, pays for X-rays, and scans. The medical clinic also offers treatment to other people in the community, but mainly it exists to provide services to the HIV/AIDS patients in the community. The children tested are between the ages of 6 months and 17 years, the majority are school going OVC and still need medical and educational support.
Many of the people that were living positive were not sure of their status. In the last 14 years of the existence of the medical clinic, we have been able to screen more than 25,000 people for HIV/AIDs and we today have a Positive living clientele of about 1700 people, of which majority of them are Children, A lot of children have been rescued from death by providing treatment and transport to the clinic. Quality available health service (laboratory, Antenatal, HIV/AIDs Clinic), qualified medical personnel reduced on the community purchasing and seeking medical assistance from unqualified community outlets that sell medicines.
