76% of Uganda’s population live in rural areas which have poor access to health care. Uganda significantly falls short of the WHO standards for 1 doctor for every 1000 people. The situation is alarming when it comes to maternal health care access in rural and remote areas. According to the World Health Organization, 25 women die every day in rural and peri urban areas of Uganda. Our Founder Andrew Ddembe largely grew up in such community in Buikwe district his home area and consequently was motivated to find a solution to combat the status quo. Andrew shared this idea with his mother, a community nurse by profession and brother a doctor and medical researcher. In October 2018, Andrew submitted his idea to compete in the international Sandoz Hack.
According to the Uganda bureau of statistics, 76% of Uganda’s population lives in rural areas. However, this bulk of the population is marginalised when it comes to accessing health care. 75% of Ugandan doctors work in urban areas where only 20% of the population lives. The remaining doctors quite often travel abroad for greener pastures. In urban areas, the doctor to patient ratio is 1; 9,000 while in rural areas it is 1; 22,000.
Mobiklinic offers a solution of how best to maximize the few present doctors by creating a system of interface with community health workers.
GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE; According to the World Economic Forum, more than half of the world’s population cannot access basic health care services and many of these come from last mile areas. Again this puts us in position to solve this pressing problem of the world.
Mobiklinic partners with Clarke International University to train people as Community Health Providers. These often are professional nurses who undergo maternal health skills uplift and are deployed in the community with a MobiKlinic tablet powered with 4G internet access. When a pregnant woman/patient approaches the CHP.
The CHP opens an account for the patient on the app, indicates the trimester the pregnant mother is in, and starts treating the patient. CHP punches in treatment that’s kept under code numbers as medical history for the patient. In a scenario where the CHP is challenged, the CHP can contact senior doctors available on the app. Who can offer guidance as regards the treatment.
This creates a digital safety net, as it ensures the safety and standard of service offered to the patient. In the event where CHP has an emergency patient, the CHP can call for Mobiklinic van or a near health centre ambulance which ensures treatment of the patient is at their door step/comfort of their home.
