Description and results


The project aims to improve maternal and child health in the Kayonza, Mpungu and Kanyantorogo subcounties. Buy-A-Net Malaria Prevention Group has partnered with Bwindi Community Hospital to reach an estimated 55,000 people living in remote villages, with an emphasis on children under age five and women of childbearing age. The hospital team trains village health providers and community leaders to mobilize the community, monitor children and expectant mothers, and serve as points of referral to the hospital. The team distributes insecticide-treated mosquito nets and oral rehydration salts for treatment of diarrhea, and educates community members about preventing and treating common maternal and childhood illness through school visits, radio broadcasts and information sessions. The project ended ahead of schedule.

Expected results

The expected intermediate outcomes for this project include: increased access to health education and simple treatments for households in the three subcounties; improved household practices related to treatable and preventable childhood diseases in the three subcounties; improved practices related to gender-sensitive family planning and safe motherhood in the three subcounties; and increased effectiveness of the Community Health and Batwa Division of Bwindi Community Hospital.

Results achieved

Terminating unexpectedly after only 2.5 years of operation, the project was nonetheless able to achieve some significant results. As of October 2016, these include: (1) a 22.5% reduction in the maternal mortality rate and a reduction of 49.5% in the under-5 child mortality rate, in the project areas; (2) an increase in the number of births assisted by a skilled birth attendant whereby 87% of births were attended in the project areas, compared to the national average of only 53%; (3) over 10,000 children between the ages of 1 and 5 had complete vaccination; and (4) 12,075 children under the age of 5 were screened for malnutrition.
