TGR marks healthcare milestone, highlighting Afya Foundation’s generous contribution to TGR Community Health Center

ROYERSFORD, PENNSYLVANIA, November 11, 2022 / — TGR is excited to announce its recent partnership with Afya Foundation, which has recently made the generous donation of critical medical supplies and equipment to TGR’s Community Health Center.

Afya’s support will enable TGR to expand its efforts in providing quality healthcare and improving the health of people of all ages within the Kitubulu Village, Kabale Municipality, and the Katabi Township of the Wakiso District in Uganda. Through its Community Health Center, TGR is addressing a wide variety of critical public and personal care health needs within this community, including preventative medicine, immunizations, prenatal care, and health maintenance services for people afflicted with chronic diseases such as diabetes, HIV, and asthma. The TGR Community Health Center is currently staffed with seven certified medical practitioners and three operational support team members. 

In addition to the Community Health Center, TGR provides the residents of Wakiso District, and any registered patients within a 15-mile radius of the Katabi Township, with quarterly health fairs. On average, each of these three-day health fairs, supported by volunteers from local medical and nursing schools, local government, the community, and the Ugandan Ministry of Health, serve over 1,000 people.

TGR plays a critical role in addressing the public health needs of Uganda’s Kabale Municipality; this partnership allows us to continue making health care accessible to vulnerable communities. We are grateful for Afya’s partnership and are encouraged at what the future holds for TGR in its efforts to reduce health disparities within Uganda.
