For a decade, Bridge to Health has been visiting the same locations in Kenya and Uganda, the lake village Kisumu in Kenya and the mountainous Kabale, Uganda, working closely with local healthcare providers to improve the quality of care and reach the underserved in their communities through medical camps designed to enhance the impact of the local providers. In 2023 we added a new Ugandan location with a new partnership with the Kanalgala District Health Center.
This program is supported by the Humanitarian Grand Challenges grant and is in partnership with MedGlobal.
Bridge to Health is currently supporting two students in Kenya and Uganda to pursue their clinical and dental education. Both work with our team to support our local programs in return.
Together with the University of Iquitos, Peru, we are developing a protocol for POCUS to screen for severe dengue.
We are supporting the Youth and Sport Task Force in Asia-Pacific together with UNESCO.
In partnership with the Lancet Countdown for Health and Climate Change, we are researching increased health vulnerabilities as a result of extreme weather events in Peru.
Bridge to Health is now working with the provincial clinic in Kalangala, Uganda, to support local clinicians. In May 2022, we donated a Butterfly Point-of-Care Ultrasound and are supporting in the training.
In Development: We are working on a pilot program in West Baltimore (and other north American cities) to support outreach screening in partnership with local organizations.
