At St. Francis Health Care Services, we are committed to raising awareness of HIV, treatment, care and support to persons living with HIV/AIDS, supporting the most at risk communities, empowering grandmothers and their orphaned grandchildren, empowering young people to protect themselves from the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and increasing their access to comprehensive sexual reproductive health and rights services as well as addressing maternal and child health issues in our community.
St. Francis Health Care Services is a nongovernmental service organization in Central Uganda which serves OVC (Orphans and Vulnerable Children), grandmothers, youth, care and treatment of HIV positive clients, women, adolescent girls and young women using different intervention in its efforts to mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS for both the infected and affected population.
The organization was started by a group of committed individuals in 1998 as a nongovernmental organization. It is accredited by the Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau through the Lugazi Catholic Diocese, and is an affiliate of Nile AIDS Project, a US based non-profit which provides technical and financial support to St. Francis.
