As of 2017, we are a Level III Inpatient Clinic
We offer services in HIV/AIDs testing and treatment, pre- and post-natal healthcare, family planning, public health, midwifery, outreach, and immunization
All programs are also accessible through earning Tekera pesos that can be spent at the clinic for healthcare services and are earned in our community work program
We have a great partnership with UHMG (Uganda Health Marketing Group ) to offer more comprehensive services in maternal and child health (MCH), family planning and nutrition.
WhyHealthcare in Uganda is not nationalized, leaving many without access to quality or affordable healthcare.
StoryTekera Medical Clinic started as a day clinic hosted outdoors. It has now grown into a full service inpatient facility with five beds and a birthing room.
The clinic has expanded to include the following services: treatment of acute and chronic medical conditions; inpatient services; health and addictions counselling; full spectrum family planning; health and hygiene education; immunization; HIV/AIDS testing and treatment; post- and anti-natal care; maternity ward; blood transfusion services through mobile clinics; STI testing and treatment; reproductive health services; prevention of mother to child transmission (PMTCT) education; treatment of non-communicable diseases; tropical medicine and disease treatment; and referrals to hospitals or other medical services as required.
Because there is no transport in the area, we often act as an ambulance service. Patients are placed inside the vehicle and taken to either Masaka Mulago (government hospital) or Kitovu Hospital. We often act as an ambulance service at no charge. TRC cares about its community members, and medical staff ensure follow-up with patients.
Our current partnerships include Uganda Medical Health Group (UMHG), USAID, Uganda Ministry of Health, and The Aids Support Organization (TASO).
ImpactThe Tekera Medical Clinic makes certain every community member has access to quality healthcare, so that individuals can thrive.
The Tekera Medical Clinic does the following: safely delivers babies; offers immunizations (for the first time in history for this population); tests and treats those with HIV so that they can maintain normal and dignified lives; gains funding to help children receive sight-saving eye surgery; and does malaria outreach to the community to significantly reduce the spread of the disease (Malaria has the largest mortality rate in children under 5 in Uganda and is the number one reason for doctor visits).
