The mission of Health Access Connect is to link remote communities to healthcare. HAC currently pursues this mission through three programs:
1. Medicycles: We use microfinance Boda Bodas to bring Ugandan government health workers to set up one-day mobile clinics in remote villages. In those clinics, health workers give HIV testing, antiretroviral treatment, immunizations, perinatal services, family planning, and many other services available in rural health centers.
2. Technical Advising: We collaborate with the Africa Resource Center and the Uganda Ministry of Health to teach and empower PEPFAR implementing partner organizations to implement the HAC outreach clinic model in an effort to improve service provision to people living with HIV and all other residents of remote communities.
3. Treat & Teach: We improve access to family planning in the communities of Masaka and Kalangala districts by a) providing low-density high-frequency certificate training to health workers, b) setting up outreach clinics in remote communities, c) generating demand by collaborating with community health workers (VHTs), and d) reducing commodity stockouts by providing buffer stocks and improving commodity tracking at partner health facilities.
