Message from Executive Director

I would like to welcome you to the UPMB website. The website has been designed to make it more user friendly and informative.
On the website you will find information on developments, current programmes, activities, innovations and performance of the UPMB network. In this age of Information Technology, the website is valued as an important medium that enables us to be visible in the world at large and share information with our members, partners and other stakeholders. The website provides us an opportunity to be, transparent and accountable for our contribution towards achieving the goals and objectives of the health sector in Uganda.
The website is structured to provide easy access to information about UPMB and the Ugandan health sector through links to Ministry of Health. The website is updated weekly and more if necessary.
From its humble beginnings in 1957, UPMB has grown into an umbrella organization for 304 member health facilities from all over the country. Though the challenges are great, we have realized enormous achievements through the years. Both defeats and victories have built a formidable body of knowledge.
UPMB is now recognized as a significant healthcare provider in Uganda and seeks to reach the poorest of the Poor with Quality Health Care services. By its nature and ethos, UPMB strongly supports the achievement of universal and equitable access to healthcare services in Uganda. UPMB strives at all times to maintain the highest level of quality care to all who come to its doorsteps with Respect, Gender equality, Dignity, and Confidentiality without Discrimination.
A critical strategic issue at this point of our existence is that of sustainability. To help mitigate this issue, UPMB Board and Management have redoubled their efforts to direct the Bureau towards improved self-sustainability and efficient resource utilization.
With Special thanks we acknowledge all our donors, partners and well-wishers whose support has been very vital to our work.
It is my hope that you find our website not just exciting but informative as well. You are encouraged to send us your comments about the website to enable us improve and make it serve your needs better.
Thank you for visiting us.
Dr. Tonny Tumwesigye, MBCHB, Msc. PH
