Kitgum Hospital Telemedicine Development Project

There is one main government hospital in the district, which is located within Kitgum Town council. There is also one NGO hospital ñ St. Josephís Hospital Kitgum that is about 2 km from the center of Kitgum Town. In the rural areas there are several health units.

Services provided at the government health facilities include general treatment of diseases, maternity services, family planning services, immunization services, health education and HIV/Aids counseling. Patients have to travel to the main hospital in town for cases that cannot be handled by the health units.

The objective of this project is to expand access to medical specialists through telemedicine and provide increased opportunities for community based patient treatment and recovery through the construction and operation of a Hospital/Healthcare Facility.
