Overview[edit]

Kuluva Hospital is a non-profit, private, community hospital owned and administered by the Church of Uganda. Available literature suggests that it was founded in the early 20th century (circa 1902). A small fee is charged for medical services provided, although no one is turned away for lack of payment. In addition to serving patients from communities in the West Nile Sub-region of Uganda, a significant percentage of the hospital patients come from the neighboring countries of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and South Sudan. The hospital has a bed capacity of 200, with several well-established departments including:[4]

  • Outpatients Department
