BREAKTHROUGH AIDS FOUNDATION
EVERYONE HAS A RIGHT TO HEALTHCARE
This is why we work to ensure that vulnerable communities in Uganda have access to the health services they desperately need.
WHO ARE WE?
Breakthrough AIDS Foundation is a nonprofit organization in Fort Portal, Kabarole, Uganda. We believe in equality for HIV/AIDS individuals, and providing rural communities with access to high-quality health services and skills-based training. Since 2017, we have implemented and completed various healthcare interventions, prevention programmes and income generation projects. These projects have reached over 2000 beneficiaries to date.
ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE
Our medical professionals visit beneficiaries to provide medicine such as antiretroviral treatment. We are expanding on this project with our 'healthcare for everyone initiative'.
Our local counsellors hold group discussions and focus groups for HIV positive individuals and members of populations vulnerable to HIV infection.
We hold workshops and seminars on the importance of good general health, sanitation and nutrition for HIV positive individuals.
We educate communities on the importance of healthy living and regular medical testing as part of our prevention programme. This involves conducting lectures and seminars on HIV.
Our tailoring and weaving groups produce goods for income generation, which enables beneficiaries to earn an income to support their families..
We work within the local community by constructing homes, building, painting and decorating.
This programme provides vehicle maintenance training and employment opportunities for young people suffering from HIV.
We help local communities with agricultural projects for income generation such as fish farming, piggery, poultry and cattle projects.
HEALTHCARE FOR EVERYONE INITIATIVE
The barrier to access and affordability of health services in Kabarole has had a significant impact within the area, with rural communities being the most affected. The Healthcare for Everyone initiative aims to alleviate these challenges by providing point-of-care services directly to key populations within their communities. The video below explains more about the project. If you would like to know more about this initiative or would like to discuss a potential partnership or collaboration, please contact us.
