Over the past 2 years, the BrisDoc Community Fund has been funding an ambitious project to build a brand new primary care health centre in Kampala, one of the poorest, most neglected and under resourced areas of Uganda.
After a slow start, the project has sprung into life making some fantastic progress over the past 12 months. With that in mind it was high time for a visit to see for ourselves the amazing work being carried out.
Dr Ray Montague (BrisDoc Chairman) and Dr Mike Taylor (Lead GP from BrisDoc’s Homeless Health Service and Chairman of the BrisDoc Community Fund) made a week-long visit to Kampala. What follows is a fascinating diary account of their time at the Wellsprings project.
