Alice  Ntambi Center of Health and Wellness (ANCHW)

The ANCHW will combine basic healthcare and educational opportunities for community health training, providing the means to improved health status in the community members.

Program Objectives 

  • Focusing and describing better the problem of the non-communicable diseases (NCDs) of obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and fatty liver diseases in Uganda. Prioritize needs, prescreen for the disease conditions and develop a research agenda that integrates biological and behavioral dimensions of disease etiology, natural control, and management.

  • Establishing whether there is a relationship between dietary preferences and the prevalence of NCDs.

  • Training of village health teams (VHTs) who are able to provide village nutrition education and outreach appropriate to the village context, particularly in relation to preventing maternal and child malnutrition, and reducing the risk of obesity, diabetes, and hypertension. 

  • Establishment of local nutrition programs and improved knowledge of maternal and childcare and feeding practices at the household level.

  • Family health promotion through a ten-point health screening and education program. This will initially be a cross-sectional fact-finding or research intervention of the entire Lweza-Mukono community, but whose results will be used to directly promote the continued health of the Lweza-Mukono community and beyond.
