Neonatal Initiative
Location: Moyo, Uganda


Moyo General Hospital is the largest hospital in Moyo Province and receives the more severe cases like trauma and complicated births transferred from 20 lower-level health centers located in deep rural areas. Moyo Hospital delivers approximately 5,000 babies a year and many of these babies end up in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Far too many of these babies are lost due to power and water reliability issues and lack of proper training and modern equipment.
