OUR HISTORY


Bwindi Community Hospital is a Church of Uganda (Anglican) Hospital under the Diocese of Kinkiizi. It is staffed by a team of 121. These include; doctors, nurses, midwives, other health workers and support staff. 70% of our employees are from within our catchment area and 30% are from other parts of Uganda.Bwindi Community Hospital cares for more than 100,000 people living in the South Western corner of Uganda. The Hospital is located twelve hours drive from Kampala, the capital, on poor roads, two kilometres from the Eastern border of the Congo and one kilometre from Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

However, it later turned out that their health needs were not very different from the general population where pregnant mothers were dying from easily preventable causes. This encouraged growth of this small clinic to fully fledged hospital with 135 beds, giving birth to Uganda Nursing School Bwindi 6 years ago, and Uganda College of Health Sciences Bwindi in 2019 to boost a depleted health workforce with top-notch health care professionals.
