As of 2017, we are a level III inpatient clinic
We offer services in HIV/AIDs testing and treatment, pre-and post-natal health care, family planning, public health, and immunization
All programs are accessible through earning Tekera pesos in our community work program that can be spent at the clinic for health care services
We have a great partnership with UHMG (Uganda Health Marketing Group ) to offer more comprehensive services in maternal child healthcare (MCH), family planning and nutrition.
WhyHealth care in Uganda is not nationalized, leaving many without access to quality and affordable healthcare
StoryTekera Medical Clinic started as a day clinic, hosted outside, and has now grown into a full service inpatient facility
The clinic has expanded to include services in:
Treatment of acute and chronic medical conditions, inpatient services, counselling, full spectrum family planning, health education, immunizations, HIV/AIDS testing and treatment, post and anti-natal care, maternity ward, blood transfusion services through mobile clinics, STI testing and treatment, reproductive health services, PMTCT education, treatment of non-communicable diseases, tropical medicine and diseases, and referrals.
Because there is no transport in the area, we often act as an ambulance service. Patients are placed inside the vehicle and taken to either Masaka Mulago (government hospital) or Kitovu Hospital. Currently, there is no charge. TRC cares about it’s community members, and staff ensure to follow-up with patients to ensure they have been properly cared for.
Our current partnerships include Uganda Medical Health Group (UMHG), USAID, Uganda Ministry of Health, and The Aids Support Organization (TASO)
ImpactThe Tekera Medical Clinic ensures every community member has access to quality health care, so that individuals can thrive in all aspects of their lives
The Tekera Medical Clinic does the following:
safely delivers babies, offers immunizations (for the first time in history for this population), test and treat those with HIV so that they can maintain normal and dignified lives, gains funding to help children get life-saving eye surgery so that they can have eye sight, and does malaria outreach to the community to stop contraction rates (malaria is the largest mortality rate in children under 5 in Uganda and the number one reason people visit doctors). We are most proud of our regular everyday work, the daily grind, which provides the backbone for the community to thrive in all that they do.
