Rural Health Centres don't have access to clean water in Uganda

safe water in health centres

For 80% of the Ugandan population living in rural areas, the primary referral health facility is a Health Centre III. These health facilities are the most accessed and used, but unfortunately, they are the most under facilitated. In addition, most of these health centres have no water supply and no electricity supply. 

The situation is dire. Patients and health care workers currently carry their water often from many kilometres away to use at the health centre.

A Health facility water system serves catchment populations of 30,000 to 40,000 or more, and the water system is generally shared with the surrounding community.

Countries: Uganda, India, Ethiopia, Malawi, Nepal, Myanmar

Solution: Drilled bore wells equipped with electric or solar-powered pump systems
