IMPROVING THE QUALITY OF LIFE

An indigenous, not-for-profit organisation founded by a group of distinguished public health and social marketing Ugandan professionals in 2006. Since then, UHMG has emerged as a leading organisation committed to creating high quality strategic health communication and accelerating health market growth in Uganda.

 

Founded through a USAID-funded project (AFFORD), UHMG today is a viable, self-sustaining organization. Led by a dynamic management team, guided by a nine-member board, five advisory committees, and a technical advisory group, UHMG remains focused on enabling all Ugandans to live the Good Life, by working in four key health areas: HIV/AIDS, malaria, family planning, and maternal and child health.

Thank you! You saved me, you saved my baby. Please don't stop with me. Look out for more mothers like me. Help them!

Rachel Namuluuta, 24
