dc.description.abstractMedical care in developing countries is challenging. The providers have the knowledge of best practices, but these often can not be used due to lack of funding and resources. This leaves healthcare less than subpar and full of innovations to make it work. This presentation is an overview of our experiences observing healthcare in Uganda. Topics include, in field operations, maternal fetal medicine, traditional healers, dentistry, lack of healthcare in rural villages, and the lack of medical tools and resources. Healthcare work was observed at the Kigezi Healthcare Foundation in Kabale, Uganda. KIHEFO is a non-profit non governmental organization (NGO) that provides care to many people throughout the Kabale area This organization is founded and operated by Dr. Geoffery Anguyo, an expert in HIV and public health. A main issue in Uganda was funding, KIHEFO didn’t have enough money. The Public Health department would like to help this situation by hosting a coin drive and doing a tooth brush collection drive before our next trip. These two fundraisers should help improve medical situations at KIHEFO, providing medical supplies for those in need. During Christmas break, a group of 11 students and 2 Faculty members traveled to Kabale, Uganda to learn about global health. The best way to understand global health is to immerse yourself and experience global health.en_US
