Our strategy for the clinic 2009-2013 with updates

Our strategy for 2009-2013 to continue to serve the needs of our community

To ensure the affordable medical treatment from good and friendly staff for which Hope Clinic Lukuli is recognised and relied upon in the community can continue, our strategy includes:

1. Continue the strong relationship with the community, Makindye Division, Kampala City Council and the Ministry of Health and their funding partners;

2. Strengthen the internal management and reporting systems of the clinic beyond the already established medical case records and patient care;

3. Maintain financial self-sufficiency for the out-patients, maternity and admissions services and support integration of these general health services with the free-to-client services;

4. Develop new and expanded grantee and programme relationships with Government, companies, private donators and international granting bodies to expand the free to client services as part of Uganda’s national health priorities;

5. Improve reporting of our achievements and model for a package of care for decision making and for our partners through monitoring and evaluation feedback and timely grant reporting that recognises their support.

Hope Clinic Lukuli is a registered NGO in Uganda and maintains its links to charities registered in the UK through which it can receive donations with Gift Aid.

None of the founders or trustees of the NGO receive any fee or income from the clinic or NGO and the clinic premises constructed in 2005 are owned by the NGO. Hope Clinic Lukuli is registered as a charity with the Uganda tax authorities. The clinic operates from land donated in a 25 year lease to 2030 and so has few overhead costs
