Food Insecurity in Uganda

CFHI connected myself and a classmate, both fourth year medical students, to a great healthcare organization in Kabale, Uganda called KIHEFO. At KIHEFO we were able to study tropical medicine, learn about the complex social issues affecting healthcare in Uganda, and learn how Ugandans are working to tackle big problems to like access to care, HIV and malnutrition. The clinic is organized in a way that highlights the interwoven nature of maternal and child health, HIV and nutrition in Uganda. Although I went to study food insecurity, CFHI should make it very clear to participants that the experience in Kabale is working 100% with KIHEFO, and respect the fact that since it is such an integrative organization there is no way that they can have two separate programs.
