Uganda: Improving the Quality of Health Service Delivery in Isingiro District
In February of 2008, The General Electric Foundation has awarded Jhpiego a grant of $850,000 over three years to implement the program, “Improving the Quality of Health Service Delivery in Isingiro District of Uganda.” This program aims to improve the quality of health services at community health centers and referral hospitals by implementing SBM-R, focusing initial efforts on strengthening infection prevention and control practices in the rural district of Isingiro in southwest Uganda. This grant supports GE’s corporate initiative called Developing Health Globally, which aims to improve community health and reduce infant and maternal mortality in selected regions across 10 countries in Africa.
About Jhpiego: For nearly 40 years, Jhpiego, (pronounced "ja-pie-go"), has empowered front-line health workers by designing and implementing simple, low-cost, hands-on solutions that strengthen the delivery of health care services, following the household-to-hospital continuum of care. We partner with community- to national-level organizations to build sustainable, local capacity through advocacy, policy and guidelines development, and quality and performance improvement approaches.
