I Am A Girl launches an affordable health clinic for women in Mbale.
I Am A Girl (IAG) is excited to announce the opening of a new Women’s Wellness Clinic in Mbale. A long-time dream of IAG founders, Desire and Dorothy, both of whom have medical backgrounds.
"We decided to open a full-service clinic because people in the community need greater access to health care" said Dorothy.
A variety of services are available, including pregnancy and reproductive care, family planning, menstrual support, STD testing, mental health counseling and vaccinations. The clinic has three on-site staff: a clinical doctor, a lab technician and a social worker to provide care. Through our partnership with a local hospital, patients will be able to receive more intensive care at an affordable price.
The clinic, supported by our local municipality, opened on March 8, 2022 to mark the celebration of International Women's Day. The Clinic is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. with low-cost services Monday - Saturday. Health care services are free on Sundays.
IAG is committed to providing women with access to affordable health care and is delighted to now offer services that support their physical and mental well-being.
All are welcome and encouraged to seek services.
