This Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device is one of 2 donated by IMET2000 and is already in use at Herona Hospital. This is an extremely important breakthrough for Herona Hospital not only for COVID19 but also to start their much-needed ICU. This is the first in Uganda and IMET2000 are keen to manufacture more in Uganda. This project is a collaboration between UCL Mechanical Engineering, UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering, University College London Hospital
Outreach has always been an important part of Herona Hospitals services. Keeping to strict social distancing rules Herona Hospital are going to remote areas and and testing for HIV. Many people turned up for free HIV screening in Ngombele trading centre.
As well as free drugs and testing for our HIV clinic the government have also supplied the hospital with a number of different drugs. This helps increase the number of free drugs available to the community. The drugs Herona Hospital have to offer for free include malaria, sickle cell anemia, also drugs to stop the transference of HIV from mother to baby.
Garvin and everyone involved with Herona Hospital would like to extend a warm welcome to 2 new midwives and on call doctor. Since the opening of the Julie Felix Memorial Maternity Unit, in our new building with affordable pricing, child birth has increased at a huge rate so new recruits have been found to help cope with demand. We look forward to serving more of our community.
We are very proud to announce our HIV care clinic is now open, fully stocked with ARV’s and CD4 screening system.
Since Herona Hospital opened its doors in September 2017, one of our main aims was to set up a state of the art HIV clinic. Becoming a fully-fledged HIV clinic meant the availability of ARV ‘s with a test and treat slogan.
We greatly appreciate Makerere Walter Reed Project and the office of the DHO for their continuous support.
