Our Mobile Health Clinic

In an effort to make health care affordable and accessible for all, RGHM is taking care to where people live.  

In Uganda, the cost of transportation can be prohibitive to patients who want to seek medical care. Our Mobile Health Clinic (MHC) travels to meet the needs of it's patients. Our MHC makes trips to villages in our catchment area for healthcare education and medical check-ups. We are also available to visit local schools to administer routine medical check-ups when the new school term is opening. 

If you are interested in having the MHC visit your area, please contact us through our official hospital contacts at 0758709161 or 0701791373.

All of these services are available at Ruth Gaylord Hospital Maganjo.
