GET WELL GENERAL CLINIC
PROJECT CODE: UPA/MLTV/02
Background Get well general clinic was started up in 2011 in the distant/slum areas of
Lubaga division-Lubya parish; five (5) km from the capital city of Uganda. The
establishment of Get well was due to lack of proper health services in the
community as people had to travel long distances to access medical services
from the hospitals. The Clinic currently has a capacity of up to ten beds. It is
registered by the Medical board council of Uganda with a practicing
Vision: To become a regional leader in holistic health care provision, combining
excellent clinical services with community based health approaches through
