HAVING carefully studied the Uganda healthcare situation in particular and the region as well as the African continent in general, we realized and established the immense urgent needs of healthcare unit, the consequences of poor healthcare on the citizens and the country and the ultimate exorbitant fees Ugandans pay to attain/access advanced healthcare needs/services within the country and abroad. We further established the shortage of healthcare professionals evidenced by wide doctor to patient ratio, under-unequipped laboratories and general low community awareness of/or preventative strategies in case of un epidemic out break and they are ill.
Therefore, for appropriate healthcare interventions in Uganda we have considered the establishment and construction of the Diaspora International Hospital Uganda (DIHU) offering holistic healthcare services which is critical to meeting Uganda’s healthcare needs for its citizens, the Diaspora, neighbours in East Africa and Africa in general. Drawing from this premise we strongly believe that through provision of the best healthcare services to the people of Uganda, Diaspora and its African neighbours, DIHU will contribute by accelerating the socioeconomic transformation as well as stimulating broad based health healthcare provision in Uganda.
AND realising that by providing strong healthcare institution to Ugandans suffering the scarce healthcare services and products could turn the society into productive communities through appropriate, affordable and accessible healthcare services to every Ugandan.WE HAVE therefore willfully and empathetically resolved to organize ourselves into a foundation called DIASPORA INTERNATIONAL HOSPITAL UGANDA FOUNDATION, to enact the establishment and subsequent construction of DIHU Foundation with the aim of providing, supporting, supplementing and complimenting the efforts of the government of Uganda and other stakeholders the state-of-the-art healthcare in Uganda and the region at large.
