Mission Statement

Walimu is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to improving management of severely ill hospitalized patients through sustainable, evidence-driven initiatives.

Description

Walimu works through a comprehensive of inquiry, advocacy and empowerment to ultimately transform the management of severe illness.

Inquire

Walimu inquires about local health care needs through our long-standing relationships with local providers. We adapt innovative, evidence-based models of care to fit the practice of medicine in Uganda, and evaluate their feasibility. These programs provide a blueprint for local providers to engage the Ugandan community to make a difference.

Advocate

Walimu works with Ugandan community members, health professionals, philanthropists and policy makers to marshal political and financial support for programs to ensure their effective implementation and sustainability.

Empower

Walimu imparts the skills necessary for local providers to be able to implement the proposed programs, while providing the logistical support, scientific mentoring, and encouragement to ensure that plans are executed.

Transform

By seeking evidence-based solutions, engaging local partners, and following our vision through to realization, we are gradually transforming the health care delivery process in Uganda, with minimal resources and maximum efficiency.
