The Health home initiative believes in creating sustainable change amongst vulnerable communities in Uganda. In its strugle to reduce the vulnerability of women and children to poor health, poverty, HIV/AIDS, iliteracy, poor sanitation rights violation, HHI laid out EIGHT core programs which are in line with its mission, golas and objectives as highlited below;
Cancer Awareness Screening, Care and Support

Safe Water and Environmental Sanitation
HIV/AIDS Prevention, Care and Support


HHI needs assessment report (2010) indicated that most women that have ever had family planning services from the available public health facilities have hardly been sensitized on issues of cancer especially the root causes,complications, the preventive measures as well as its management. This is an indication that most women of reproductive age (15-49 years) especially in rural areas where such services are scarce have limited knowledge on the disease.

Among the services offered include health education on issues of safe water, personal hygiene and environmental sanitation. We also target at engaging communities to rehabilitate local wells and reconstruction of community latrines to protect the right of women to privacy.
The current National HIV report (2011) indicates that the proportion of Ugandans who are infected with HIV now stands at 7.3 (and even higher in women at 8.3 %). The number of new infections has been rising steadily, from 124,000 in 2009; through 128,000 in 2010; and now to approximately 145,000 in 2011; a situation that is extremely affecting the national economy including labour force in the production and service sectors.

Majority of Ugandans live under viscous cycle of poverty and therefore cannot afford the basic necessities of life such as decent shelter, education, access to quality health care, clothing and food security. Lack of decent incomes in a home is one of the factors that contribute to increased ill health, depression, anxiety, fear, stigma and discrimination, powerlessly, inefficiency to make positive decisions of life for women and their children.
Due to HIV/AIDS and natural death, many children have lost their biological parents and finally become total Orphans. Other children do still have their parents but due to poverty, caregivers are finding it difficult to meet the needs and demands of their children and therefore remain vulnerable. Through working experience, HHI realised that majority of OVC are under the care and support of elderly widows, who also under go economic constraints and community neglect and abuse.
It is important to note that government of Uganda introduced Uganda Primary Education (UPE) in 2007 to contribute to education for ALL; Goal number 2 which is to achieve universal primary education. Despite government’s support to the education, our experience working with communities revealed that Orphans and vulnerable children still have limited access due to their inability to meet the other costs such as scholastic materials, school feeding, warm clothing which all contribute to their better academic performance.

Once disasters have occurred, emergency needs have been met, the initial crisis is over, people in the affected communities are still in the state of vulnerability that requires post emergency rehabilitation programs. The Health Home Initiative feels concern to give an upper hand to all those that have undergone or experienced natural and man-made disaster such as flood, famine, diseases among others. With this post emergency response and rehabilitation program, HHI looks at providing relief items such As food, medicines, beddings, warm clothing and counseling services.
