Healing Little Hearts in Uganda

Core Program

The Gift of Life International initiative to develop sustainable pediatric cardiac programs in emerging countries began at the Uganda Heart Institute (UHI) in 2009. Since then, we have upgraded essential equipment, facilitated training by world-class healthcare professionals, installed a telemedicine system and provided supplemental supplies and medicines to support reliable and sustainable surgeries at UHI. We have also worked to engage the UHI Hospital Administration and the Ugandan Ministry of Heart who now annually support this program.

Accomplishments to Date:

955 Children Treated
$2.87M Invested
24 Training Visits Conducted

Focus for 2018:

Empowerment of Ugandan doctors and nurses to provide care on a sustainable basis and continue RHD Research and Treatment
