GALILEE COMMUNITY GENERAL HOSPITAL
PROJECT CODE: UPA/MLTV/01
Background Galilee Community General Hospital was started up in 2008 in the slum areas of
Lubaga Division, 5 km from the capital Kampala. The establishment of Galilee
was due to lack of health services in the area as people had to travel long
distances to the public hospitals. The hospital currently has a capacity of up to
forty inpatient beds. It is registered by the Medical board council of Uganda with
a practicing License.
Aim To become a regional leader (East Africa) and international partner in holistic
health care provision, combining excellent clinical services with community
based services, research, education and advocacy.
