Kalangala District, Uganda is situated in the Ssese Islands in Lake Victoria. Community members that live in this remote area of the country often have trouble accessing basic healthcare. There are clinics and doctors, but patients often have to travel very far, which can be expensive and time-consuming - sometimes a 1 hour motorcycle ride away. Though there may not be health clinics in all of the villages, there are health workers on the island and ways to reach the patients.
Health Access Connect (HAC) uses motorcycle taxis to set up monthly, 1-day health clinics in remote villages of Uganda. These clinics allow people to access essential health services like anti-retroviral treatment, malaria treatment, child checkups, and family planning. Though originally created in response to lack of HIV/AIDS services, community insights have led to the need to strategize around incorporating maternal health services into these community clinics.
